The Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer (OCSE) manages the Supporting Young Scientists Program (SYSP).
The SYSP offers grants to NSW high school students participating 'in person' or virtually in competitions, events or courses, either domestically or internationally, which offer the potential for significant educational advancement in an area related to science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). The grant is provided for competitions, events or courses being held from July 2022 to June 2023.
Grants are awarded on an ad hoc basis until allocated funds are expended and are the primary mechanism by which funding will be awarded to eligible NSW high school students participating in STEM-related competitions, events or courses.
The SYSP has now closed as allocated funds for 2022-23 are fully expended. Please check back in July 2023 for information about the 2023-24 round.
|26 August 2022||2022-23 round opens|
|31 May 2023 (or when allocated funds are expended)||2022-23 round closes|
