Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, has encouraged local students to apply for a
Government-funded scholarship to study a science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) course.
Mr Porter said the Liberal Government is increasing the number of scholarships available through the Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships Program.
“Scholarships of up to $18,000 are available to help students in Pearce with the costs of studying STEM at university or a Vocational Education and Training (VET) institution,” Mr Porter said.
“One of these scholarships could help a promising Pearce student realise their potential and get a STEM education that will open a world of future possibilities.
“I encourage every student in Pearce who wants to study STEM to apply for the program.”
The Liberal Government has committed $58.1 million for more than 3,150 scholarships for regional and remote students.
The first round of the scholarship program has already helped 504 regional and remote students to commence study in 2018.
Applications close on Friday 1 February 2019 and offers will be made on 11 February 2019.
