The NSW Department of Industry, through the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer (OCSE) has introduced the Supporting Young Scientists Program (SYSP).
The SYSP is offering grants to NSW high school students participating 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 competition, events or courses being held from July 2018 to June 2019.
The 2018/19 SYSP is now closed. The complete list of successful 2019 SYSP applicants can be viewed here.
Grants are awarded on an ad hoc basis, 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 by the OCSE.
The judging panel is comprised of OCSE staff, as well as an independent panel member/s.
For further information about the Supporting Young Scientists Program, including eligibility and section criteria, please refer to the Guidelines for Applicants – Supporting Young Scientists Program available for download at the link below.
An announcement on the 2019/20 Supporting Young Scientists Program will be made shortly.
