The Advance Queensland STEM.I.AM Grant is now open
The Advance Queensland STEM.I.AM Program aims to increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students pursuing STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) at university through targeted engagement activities for Indigenous young people.
The Queensland Government through State Library of Queensland has committed $170,000 for the program, with grants of up to $25,000 per project available for Councils to support the participation and engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from grades 5 to 12 in coding and robotics programs through public libraries and Indigenous Knowledge Centres across Queensland.
The program will foster collaboration and partnerships between community groups, libraries, schools and universities, and will provide opportunities to utilise and strengthen existing connections in local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities through activities that will increase engagement with STEM.
