The EOS Scholarships for Future Excellence in STEM are designed to recognise and nurture the talent of Australia’s future STEM workforce.

We are committed to growing Australia’s future space workforce by investing in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives, including through championing the development of women in STEM through scholarships and workforce programs.

EOS partnered with One Giant Leap Australia to identify and select the following students who have shown outstanding achievements in STEM:

  • Olivia Widjaja awarded an EOS Space Systems internship and scholarship funding of $8,000
  • Lisa Rheinberger awarded scholarship funding of $4,000
  • Francesca Dobbie (Coco) awarded scholarship funding of $4,000
  • Jessica Kreskay (Jess) awarded scholarship funding of $4,000

One Giant Leap Australia has been established to prepare and sustain the next generation to thrive in an increasingly technologically complex and competitive global economy. Founded in 2015 by Jackie and Bob Carpenter, One Giant Leap Australia creates unique learning experiences to develop and enhance, scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical literacy, as well as the crucial skills of problem solving, critical analysis, creative thinking, communication and collaborative teamwork. A key activity of One Giant Leap since it was established and prior to that, by Jackie in a personal capacity, has been taking delegations of Australian students, teachers and parents to Space Camp USA, based in Huntsville, Alabama.

The funding will be available for use over a two year period and may be used in any way that helps STEM learning.
