A record 25 scholarships have been awarded to women studying Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at 13 universities across Australia.
The Defence Women in STEM Undergraduate scholarships played a significant role in building the talent pipeline. Seventeen previous scholarship recipients have completed their degree programs, with seven continuing on to Defence STEM Cadetship programs and a further four women now employed by Defence.
This year’s scholarship program also honours the late Leisa Condie, who made outstanding contributions to cryptology and the high performance computing program in Defence and the Australian Signals Directorate.
The Leisa Condie Defence Women in STEM Undergraduate Scholarship was awarded to Edith Cowan University student Hannah Rice, whose studies align with Leisa’s work area.
The scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrated academic excellence and who displayed positive attributes such as community leadership and extra-curricular engagement.
