Support our STEMM Scholarships Appeal

Donate by 30 June to support STEMM Scholarships

When it comes to truly world-changing professions - people who are advancing new technologies to improve lives, exploring the wonders of the universe or creating breakthroughs in science and health – they fall under one banner: STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine). 

We live in a technology rich society that is going through major digital transformation. Jobs in STEMM are predicted to grow exponentially in coming years, outpacing the number of young people pursuing these fields and resulting in a significant skills gap. This skills gap is compounded by the poor attraction and retention of women in STEMM. 

Careers in STEMM are growing fast. Your support will help RMIT STEMM students prepare for the future world of work and enable talented young women the support they need to break into STEMM careers. 

Support students like Emily

One of these students is Emily, a Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical Engineering) (Honours) student who underwent complex medical treatment throughout her childhood and understands firsthand the impact technology has on patient outcomes. Now she’s keen to be “part of changing and evolving biomedical technologies in Australia”, helping others to lead healthier lives.

Meet Emily

"I see the future of my career in biomedical engineering being a benefit to the community in many ways and biomedical technologies as a constantly appreciating asset and resource we can dive into."

- Emily, Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical Engineering) (Honours) student

Please donate to our STEMM Scholarships Appeal and give students like Emily the support they need to excel in their studies and embark on world-changing careers in STEMM. For every donation you make, RMIT will match it dollar for dollar to double your impact in support of students pursuing these disciplines.
