"I’m very proud to present Eliza and Aiden with the Northrop Grumman, ViaSat and Optus, Country Scholarship for Burgmann College. Northrop Grumman believes that investing in higher education is investing in a more knowledgeable and capable future workforce for Australia. We are thrilled to continue this valuable program, and look forward to supporting the next generation of STEM professionals," said Irving.

"Supporting students who are under-represented in STEM disciplines, particularly young women from regional and rural areas, is an important step towards improving diversity and ultimately benefiting society as a whole – and it’s what makes this scholarship so important,” said Professor Mike Calford, provost at The Australian National University.

"Scholarships such as this are integral to ensuring the next generation of scientists, mathematicians and engineers have every opportunity to reach their potential."

Cowley, who grew up in Goondiwindi, is pursuing a bachelor of health science degree at The Australian National University. She ranked first in her high school cohort in biology, and hopes to obtain a degree in medicine at The Australian National University.

Matson is seeking a bachelor of engineering degree (honours) at The Australian National University.
