Overview

SpiRit of Science Scholarship

The SpiRit of Science: Maurice de Rohan Scholarship enables students in years 10 and 11 at South Australian schools to attend the Christmas Lectures in London staged by the RiGB (Royal Institution of Great Britain). The SpiRit of Science Scholarship gives a talented group of young people a chance to develop their passion for science in a unique learning environment.

Since their inception in 2005, the SpiRit of Science: Maurice de Rohan Scholarships (named after the late Maurice de Rohan, South Australia’s former Agent General in London) have each year enabled ten students students and two teachers to visit the science sights of London. Each year the group returns with an even stronger passion for science, technology, engineering and mathematics and goals for future STEM careers.
