AMSI receives funding to expand PhD internship program for women in STEM

March 2023

The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) has been awarded $998,000 in funding as part of the Federal Government’s Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship (WiSE) grants program.

The funding will see 113 women in STEM postgraduate research students placed into industry internships and receive entrepreneur training through AMSI’s industry engagement arm, Australian Postgraduate Research Intern (APR.Intern).

Under the WiSE grant, APR.Intern will offer eligible businesses a $7,500 subsidy to engage women in STEM postgraduate research students in 3-6 month research internships. This lowers the cost of a 3-month internship, for example, to $12,500, with 113 rebates available over the next three years.
