2018 Queensland Women in STEM Prize

Stage: Submissions Open

2018 Queensland Women in STEM Prize

Presented by the World Science Festival Brisbane and Queensland Government.

In Queensland our female experts in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) fields are international leaders and at the forefront of many breakthroughs and discoveries. They are working to make a difference to the wellbeing of individuals and communities locally, nationally and internationally.

To support this trend and encourage further innovation from and collaboration between women in STEM fields, the World Science Festival Brisbane and the Queensland Government are proud to present the 2018 Queensland Women in STEM Prize. 

Two cash prizes of $5,000 are available to support individual professional development opportunities.

The aim of the competition is to showcase inspiring early to mid-career females working in STEM fields whose practice has the potential to benefit Queensland. 

The Queensland Women in STEM Prize aims to identify individual female STEM professionals who are not only making a positive contribution to their field, but are also engaging with and communicating their practice to a broader community. 

This competition is open to individuals only. Teams are ineligible to apply.

Competition winners will be announced during the World Science Festival Brisbane 2018.
