The Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (DIIS) is currently calling for applications for the Women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and Entrepreneurship programme.

women in STEM, to eliminate barriers for women’s participation in STEM
education and careers, including entrepreneurship. The programme supports
outreach programmes targeting girls and women to foster interest in
entrepreneurship, to develop innovation and entrepreneurial skills, and to
build professional networks. The programme also provides funding to identify
and celebrate STEM role models in science and research, entrepreneurship and
corporate leadership to inspire school-age girls.
The funds available for a grant are between
$5,000 and $250,000 for a maximum duration of 24 months. Full applications are
