If you are in Year 11 and love science or engineering, now is the time to consider applying for the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF).

The NYSF is a unique 12-day program held in Canberra each year during the January holidays. The forum offers an outstanding opportunity for students to connect with universities and leading scientific organisations like the CSIRO and to test drive careers in the fields of science, engineering and technology.

Eligible students will be in Year 11, a permanent resident of Australia, and considering further study in science or engineering. If you are interested in being selected and having the fee greatly subsidised, attend the information session.  You will get your questions answered and get help with your application.

Students must have the support of a local Rotary club. There are seven Rotary clubs in Bendigo who pool their resources to help successful students with funding. In 2016, Mitchell Legg and Georgina Schroen from BSSC were selected to attend – they’ll be happy to tell you of their experience if you want to know more.

Applications close on Thursday 31 May.  Interviews of shortlisted applicants are held in Melbourne later in the year.
