The ISS Indigenous Scholars Program

The 2015 Indigenous Australian Scholars

Our ISS2015 Indigenous Australian Scholars

Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders are under-represented in science and engineering in Australia — which is why the ISS aims to bring talented, enthusiastic Indigenous Australian students together with like-minded scholars from across Australia and around the globe.

The ISS Indigenous Scholars Program reserves five scholarships to attend the International Science School for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants. Applicants are selected against the same criteria of interest in science and academic achievement, but only Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can apply for these reserved places at the ISS program.

If you are an Aboriginal or Torres Straight Islander student in grade 11 or 12, if you enjoy science, if you want to meet people from across Australia and around the world with similar interests ... then you should apply!
