Superstars of STEM applications now open

Applications for the next round of Superstars of STEM are now open!

Superstars of STEM aims to smash society's gender assumptions about scientists and increase the public visibility of women in STEM. Science & Technology Australia (STA) launched Superstars of STEM to create a critical mass of celebrity Australian female scientists and technologists – role models for young women and girls – and to work towards equal representation in the media of women and men working in all fields in STEM.

Superstars of STEM is a two-year program supporting 60 women in STEM. The first year of the program will focus on professional development and the second year will focus on providing participants opportunities to practice their new skills through media and speaking opportunities in schools and on high profile stage.

Applications open: Monday 15 August

Applications close: Sunday 23 September
