Students in Eden-Monaro are encouraged to apply for a government-funded scholarship to study a science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) course.
Applications were now open for scholarships available through the Rural and Regional Enterprise Scholarships program.
“Scholarships of up to $18,000 are available to help students in Eden-Monaro with the costs of studying STEM at university or a Vocational Education and Training (VET) institution,” Senator Jim Molan said.
“One of these scholarships could help a promising Eden-Monaro 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 student in Eden-Monaro who wants to study STEM to apply for the program,” he said
The Morrison 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, February 1 and offers will be made on February 11.
