As we celebrate International Women’s Day, APR.Intern reflects on this year’s theme, ‘Invest in Women’ by checking in on our progress for Women in STEM.

Since launching in 2007, APR.Intern have proudly placed over 1000 PhD internships, with 31 percent of these placements being Women in STEM.

Last year, an Australian Government $7,500 Women in STEM Subsidy was made available to businesses that engage women in STEM postgraduate research student interns.

The Subsidy is funded by the Federal Department of Industry, Science and Resources’ Women in STEM & Entrepreneurship (WiSE) grants program, with 113 available for businesses over the next three years. Learn more here.

APR.Intern is committed to increasing the number of female postgraduate researchers working in STEM industry careers and building entrepreneurial mindsets.
