Scholarships

New in 2020, veski introduced financial assistance by way of a scholarship for regionally based, Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander women, or other worthy mid-career emerging female leaders (as determined by the review panel) to support their participation in the veski inspiring women STEM sidebyside program.

The scholarships provide financial assistance to either join the program and/or assist with travel & accommodation and/or other hardships faced due to circumstances surrounding the coronavirus (COVID – 19) environment.
