"I would thoroughly recommend the Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka! Awards to any student. The Sir Paul Callaghan Eureka! Awards was a fantastic opportunity where I met other passionate like-minded youth and spread awareness about the importance of diversity in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths) fields. The Eureka! awards were exciting, inspiring, challenging, and just plain awesome!"
Rachael Wiltshire - Eureka Finalist 2014
"My association with the Awards has provided me with a number of opportunities, including the chance to participate in a Ministry of Education reference group and to Chair the Alumni Trust. Beyond the obvious financial prizes and networking opportunities, I think it is this ongoing commitment to alumni that makes the Eureka! programme so valuable and unique. No other programme that I am aware of provides continuing development opportunities - and lifelong friendships - to students who have completed the programme."
Sylvia English - Eureka Finalist 2012
"Participating in Eureka helped me understand the importance of being able to communicate complex scientific minutiae in a useful and accessible manner. This essential skill has helped me talk about my research to key stakeholders - participants, clinicians, other researchers, and funding bodies through grant applications.
I loved participating in Eureka and have found the experience continually valuable as I build my career."
