Royal Society Te Apārangi will select six students  to experience a five day programme together with up to fifty Australian secondary school students. Students that are selected will visit top scientific and technological institutions and participate in a hands-on programme.

Students selected by Royal Society Te Apārangi for this opportunity will be supported, in general, for up to 70% of their international travel and registration costs by the Talented School Students Travel Award. To be considered, all students must complete the 2018 International Science Opportunities for Students Application Form [DOC 55.50 kb].

Suitable for Year 12 and Year 13 students, the event will be held in early July.

For those applying for this opportunity, please supply all material by 5pm, Wednesday 14 March 2018 to:

Debbie Woodhall
Royal Society Te Apārangi
PO Box 598
Wellington 6140

Additional Notes:
Although most of these opportunities are not teacher accompanied, these programmes are quite structured and fully supervised. However, if applicants and their parents/guardians feel uncomfortable with these conditions, we would strongly advise you not to apply. Furthermore, if more than one student is to be selected for a particular opportunity, then we strongly recommend that these students travel together.

Schools cannot nominate any more than four students in total, but those nominated students can apply for one or for as many opportunities they would like to by ticking the boxes on the application form.
