SAGE Athena Swan Scholarship: USQ Women in STEMM Research

Women have historically been, and continue to be, significantly under-represented in STEMM fields, which may reflect past disadvantage. The University recognises the important role that equal opportunity measures contemplated by anti-discrimination law can make in opening up opportunities for women, including in STEMM fields. 

Accordingly, these scholarships are open only to applicants who are women from the research fields listed below:

  • Astrophysics 
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Information Technology
 
  • Stipend of AUD $32,000 per annum.
  • Standard period of tenure of a scholarship is three years. Periods of study already undertaken towards the degree will be deducted from the period of tenure.
