STEM Scholarships

About the scholarships 

There’s a significant gender disparity in STEM in Australia. Women are substantially underrepresented in both STEM education and STEM careers.

So CEW is doing something about it. We are offering scholarships to mid to senior-level STEM managers to help them develop their leadership capabilities. Candidates can target the skills they need to accelerate their STEM careers by choosing their own course.
