Indigenous STEM Awards – Invitation to nominate / apply
In 2017, as part of the Indigenous STEM Education Project, funded by BHP Billiton Foundation and managed by CSIRO, we are opening two categories of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander STEM Professional Awards. The Early Career Professional Award is for professionals with up to 5 years post graduate or equivalent experience and the Career Achievement Award recognises career professionals with greater than 5 years post graduate experience or equivalent.
These awards recognise and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander STEM professionals who are making significant contributions to their field by establishing, managing or undertaking key STEM initiatives, programs and/or research and who are committed to actively supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people pursue STEM careers.
The winners will serve as Indigenous STEM ambassadors and receive opportunities to build their career profile to the value of $20,000.
To help us reach and encourage as many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander STEM professionals around the country to apply, please share this information through your professional networks.
Applications open Monday 16 October and close Friday 10 November 2017.
