The National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) is a not-for-profit organisation that runs programs to encourage young people in their passion for science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
Their flagship program is a 10 day residential for students entering year 12, held in January, that offers an exceptional opportunity to learn about career and study pathways, have hands-on experiences and access to some of the world's leading scientists in fields such as Astrophysics, Aeronautics and Medical Research. 
 
Rotary is the Founding Partner of the NYSF, and every year Rotarians continue to support the NYSF Year 12 Program by promoting the opportunity in local communities, managing applications and selections of students and assisting with funding or fund-raising for student fees to attend. Rotarians also volunteer during the NYSF Year 12 Program in January. NYSF estimates that Rotarians contribute more than 20,000 volunteer hours to the program every year. (Note: Students no longer have to be endorsed or sponsored by a Rotary Club to apply to NYSF and District selections are online).
 
Applications will open on 24 May for the January 2023 program and students in year 11 at present, from around Australia, can register their interest now on the NYSF website: https://www.nysf.edu.au/programs/year-12-program/ .  Though there is a cost scholarships are also available.
