The NYSF Access and Equity Scholarship assists participants who may find it challenging to attend the NYSF Year 12 Program.

Applications for Access and Equity Scholarships for the 2023 NYSF Year 12 Program will open after selection interviews. 

We are committed to ensuring that as many talented, young Australians can participate in our programs as possible.

This is why we have an Access and Equity Scholarships Program and a fully digital program should there be any reason why a student cannot travel to participate in face-to-face activities.

The scholarships assist students from diverse groups to attend the program, including students who are:

  • from remote or regional areas
  • from a low socio-economic background
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
  • from any other backgrounds that might need support.

The Access and Equity Scholarship is provided in the form of a discount off the program fees. The discount may be from $200 to $1,950.

"The scholarship allows me as a rural student, to participate in the NYSF program. This is a wonderful opportunity for me to network with industry professionals and to expand my interests in STEM." 2021 scholarship recipient

“I received the equity scholarship, which was amazing for me, and took away a lot of worry about how we were possibly going to find the funds for me to go. Given how much of an amazing experience it was, I can’t imagine how much I would have missed out on if I hadn’t had it.” 2020 scholarship recipient
