Digital and Technology Skills Program launching soon.

The Digital and Technology Skills Program (the Program) is funded under the State STEM skills strategy. The program awards grants to Western Australian STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education service providers.

Grants will be awarded to deliver projects that increase digital and/or technology skills or engagement in disadvantaged Western Australian students or people in the community under-represented in STEM or living in regional or remote areas of the State.

Grants will be awarded for a duration of up to three years across two funding tiers:

•    between $40,000 and $70,000 per annum per application; and 
•    between $10,000 and $20,000 per annum per application.

Applications are expected to open in late February and close in late March 2019.

The Program is administered by the Science and Innovation Division of the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation.
