Applications for the 2024 Premier's Science Awards are closed.

The awards are a keystone in the Western Australian Government’s efforts to raise the profile of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in WA. Over the years, awards alumni have become important ambassadors for the state, helping to inspire future generations to take up courses and careers in STEM.

Science, innovation and technology are at the frontline of efforts to diversify the WA economy. Developing STEM skills will ensure that Western Australians are well-placed to take up jobs in new and emerging industries such as batteries and critical minerals, new energy and space.

The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation administers these awards.
