Northern Territory students are being encouraged to apply for a Federal Coalition Government-funded scholarship to study a science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) course.
Country Liberals Senator for the Northern Territory, Nigel Scullion, said applications were now open for the $24 million Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships programme.
“Scholarships of up to $18,000 are available to help students in the Territory with the costs of studying STEM at university or a vocational education and training institution,” Senator Scullion said.
“One of these scholarships could help a promising Territory student realise their potential and get a STEM education that will open a world of future possibilities.
“New guidelines will also make it easier for drought-affected students to apply, including families receiving the Farm Household Allowance.
“I encourage every Territory student who wants to study STEM to apply for the programme.
“More than 1,200 rural, regional and remote students will receive support through the programme.”
The scholarships may also include internships to help students develop their professional experience and ensure they’re job-ready.
Applications close on Friday 14 December 2018.
