Elevate: Boosting Women in STEM will award up to 500 undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships to women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

What is Elevate?
ATSE has been named the sole implementing partner for the Australian Government’s 7-year $41.2 million “Boosting the Next Generation of Women in STEM” fund.

The Elevate: Boosting Women in STEM program will:

– Encourage women to pursue education and careers in STEM
– Foster industry-academia collaborations in applied research and business
– Extend qualifications and professional skills in STEM and business
– Propel women into senior leadership
– Award up to 500 undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships to women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) over seven (7) years.

Elevate is funded by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER).

The program aims to address gender inequities in STEM through fostering more women-led industry-academia collaborations in applied research and business, growing professional skills of women in STEM and propelling women into senior leadership.

How will Elevate achieve its aims?
Elevate will be co-designed by the STEM ecosystem around three pillars:

1. Education and Impact
2. Skills Building
3. Leadership

What kind of scholarships are available?
Elevate Scholarships will be awarded for undergraduate and postgraduate study at an Australian university located in Australia.

Who can apply for Elevate?
Any person who identifies as a woman will be eligible for Elevate.

Eligible women will include:

– Graduates ready to enter undergraduate STEM studies
– Postgraduate research and education opportunities
– Women already working within the STEM sector who wish to extend their qualifications or retrain
– Women who may be unemployed or on leave and want to return to STEM studies.

ATSE strongly supports flexible study and work practices (e.g. part-time work, part-time study), and the inclusion of diverse women in STEM, as well as women located in regional and rural Australia, and will ensure such opportunities be included during the co-design process.??
