Women in STEM scholarships

Swinburne’s Women in STEM Scholarships program was established to address the underrepresentation of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

The program is a key part of our gender equality strategy. Our vision is to be a world-class university creating social and economic impact through science, technology and innovation. To realise this we need to focus our efforts on creating opportunities and supporting talented individuals to achieve their full potential.

There is a clear need to encourage the best female minds to be part of advancing Australia's competitive capability in the field. These scholarships champion the principles of access and equity, ensuring that our brightest minds are supported, nurtured and inspired.

You can transform lives by expanding our scholarship offerings for women in STEM.
