national youth science forum

The National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) is a not-for-profit organisation that runs a number of residential programs to encourage young people in their passion for science. Our programs show the wide variety of engaging, rewarding and inspiring study and career options available in science, technology and engineering fields.

Rotary is the Founding Partner of NYSF and today the 21 local Rotary districts across Australia continue to conduct selections for the NYSF Year 12 Program on behalf of the NYSF.

Each year the Rotary Club of Townsville Sunrise chooses two deserving students from the North Queensland area to attend the National Youth Science Forum in Canberra.

Applications are open from early March to July 20 each year.
