AWIS STEM Award

In 2018, AWIS introduced a financial award to support women studying STEM subjects.

Through the New Horizons for Women Trust, the $9,000 award will support up to three women annually enrolled in a tertiary STEM qualification. The award is particularly aimed at women whose social identify is under-represented in their field of study.
