Grants to inspire young science and maths students in Pearce

Young Australians in Pearce who are passionate about science and maths now have more opportunities to learn from and compete with the best through new Government funding for a range of science, technology, engineering and maths activities.

Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, said the best and brightest students in the local area will have more options to travel to national and international competitions, more opportunities to participate in the National Youth Science Forum and a chance to meet and compete against their peers as Australia hosts the Asian Physics Olympiad in 2019.

“The grants will enable some of the best students in Pearce to test themselves against their counterparts from across the country and around the world, allowing them to build their knowledge, skills and networks,” Mr Porter said.

“Grants of up to $5000 per student and $20,000 per application are available, with matching contributions required for grants of over $10,000.”

These grants are open and are available until the annual allocation is used up.
