Australian Youth Aerospace Forum

The forum is designed to showcase the various university and industry opportunities available to students upon completion of secondary school.

For Students

Students have an opportunity to connect with like-minded peers and gain a clear understanding of the pathways available to them after high school.

Highlights include

  • Tours of advanced engineering facilities
  • Presentations from some of Australia’s biggest aerospace companies
  • Getting up close and personal with industry facilities

Applications will open in July.

Travel Support and Scholarships

Students can nominate to apply for a scholarship or travel equity bursary on their initial application. If successful, students will receive additional scholarship application forms with submission details. The aim of this support is to assist as many students as possible who might not otherwise be able to attend AYAF.

Scholarship details will be released alongside applications.

Team Leaders

Interested in aerospace and looking for a chance to gain some great leadership experience? As an AYAF leader you will mentor and guide students over the week’s activities and presentations.

You will have the opportunity to share your passion with younger students and encourage them to consider following a STEM, aerospace or aviation pathway.
