The Indigenous STEM Awards were launched in 2016 to recognise and reward the achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander STEM professionals and students as well as schools, teachers and mentors working in Indigenous STEM Education.
Since its launch, 44 winners and 120 finalists have been recognised for their outstanding contributions in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). There are a total of twelve awards over seven categories that cover high school and undergraduate students, STEM professionals, schools, teachers and mentors. The 2019 Indigenous STEM Awards were announced in February 2020. Applications for Indigenous STEM Awards will open again in 2021.
