National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) Year 12 Program – current year 11s 
Eligibility: in Year 11 at the time of application, an Australian citizen or resident, and/or studying full-time in an Australian school

The National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) Year 12 Program gives students that are about to start Year 12 a broader understanding of study and career options available in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

In January 2025, the NYSF Year 12 Program will run two summer sessions at:

  • The Australian National University, Canberra (6 –14 January)
  • The University of Queensland, Brisbane (15 – 23 January)

Staying on campus at university colleges, students are immersed in science and technology. Participants:

  • participate in tours of science and technology facilities,
  • learn about cutting-edge research,
  • engage with industry partners and research providers,
  • learn about university, training and STEM career pathways,
  • mix with like-minded students their age from all over Australia,
  • participate in social and team building activities, and
  • network with former NYSF participants.

Delivered by youth for youth, alumni of the Program return each year to help deliver each session through the NYSF Student Staff Leadership Program.

The program fee for the NYSF Year 12 Program in 2025 is $2,990. There is a non-refundable $65 application fee.

Students will be invoiced for their program fee once they are selected and have accepted their place, however fees are not due until 15 October 2024.

The program fee covers all accommodation, meals, and activities while at the program. The fee does not cover travel to and from the program or travel insurance.

As part of the application process, any students experiencing financial hardship or another disadvantage that negatively impacts their ability to attend the program may apply for an NYSF Access and Equity Scholarship. We also encourage students to seek financial support from NYSF’s founding partner, Rotary. Many Rotary Clubs are familiar with the NYSF and able to offer some level of funding or assist students to fundraise to attend.
