Elevate scholarships for women in STEM

Applications close for this round close 11.59pm Friday 30 September

Applications open for 2024 at 12.01am AEST Saturday 1 October.

Applications for the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences & Engineering’s Elevate: Boosting women in STEM scholarships are open from Friday 29 July 2022.

In addition to providing financial support, 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 by propelling women into leadership.

The Elevate Scholarship guidelines outline the Elevate program and Scholarship opportunities, the eligibility requirements and selection criteria, the process of and time for application consideration and the expectations of scholars engaging in the program. The scholarships are available to those who plan to commence study in 2023. If you are currently studying you are ineligible to apply for your current degree, however we would be delighted to receive your application in the future if you chose to undertake postgraduate studies or further study to elevate your leadership skills.

The Elevate program is open to all women in STEM. ATSE particularly encourages applications from individuals who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander; LGBTQIA+; individuals from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds; low-socioeconomic backgrounds; individuals from regional or rural areas or those living with a disability. Diversity, inclusion, and achievement relative to opportunity will be considered in the assessment and selection process.

Applications can be completed online through the ATSE Scholarship portal. The Scholarship portal is hosted by GoodGrants. The GoodGrants Ultimate Guide for Applicants may assist you in registering and completing your application. We encourage applicants to start the application process early, as applications can be saved as you progress through the portal. To be considered for a 2023 Scholarship, applications must be submitted by 11:59pm 30 September 2022.

Please contact the Elevate team at if you have any questions or if you would like to discuss submitting your application in a different format (e.g. a zoom meet up with our team or pre-recorded video).
