First STEM.I.AM scholarship awarded

12 May 2017

Eva Hopewell, a first-year IT student at Queensland University of Technology, has been awarded the first Advance Queensland STEM.I.AM scholarship.

After graduating, Eva plans to run her own technology company to benefit positive change for the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community. She hopes other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, especially young women, will be inspired to pursue studies and careers in STEM.

Eva said the scholarship funds will allow her to concentrate on her studies without having to supplement her income with part-time or casual work. She will also use the scholarship to pay for tuition fees and textbooks. 

The next round of Advance Queensland STEM.I.AM scholarships is now open. Working in conjunction with Central Queensland University, eligible Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students are invited to apply for this one-year scholarship worth $10,000.
