Applications for new Superstars of STEM are now open!

The search has begun for Australia’s next constellation of Superstars of STEM.

Science & Technology Australia (STA) created #SuperstarsofSTEM in 2017.  This program builds a critical mass of high-profile women scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians to serve as role models to inspire young women and girls into STEM.  It aims to smash society’s gender assumptions about STEM careers—and lift the public visibility of women in STEM—to make gains towards more equal media representation of women in STEM.

Over the first three years of the program, STA has developed the profiles of 90 women in STEM. They’ve acquired advanced communication skills and exciting opportunities to use these skills in the media, on stage and speaking with parliamentary and industry decision-makers.

The search has now begun to find the next 60 Superstars of STEM to be part of another brilliant and diverse cohort for 2021–22. 

Applications close 31 August 2020.  See the Superstars of STEM webpage for further information.
