THE WILD Program is run once per year in Australia over a 6-month period, with up to 25 participants taken through the program annually.

The next program will run from January until June 2022, with applications being sought from September 2021 and the program launch being held in November 2021. A call for applications will be promoted on this website.

Who is Eligible?

Admission into the WILD Program will be based on women who meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Currently employed in a non-academic position relating to science and health sciences, technology, engineering or mathematics (e.g. a company, not-for-profit, government agency, consultancy etc.)
  • Have a minimum of three years non-academic professional experience
  • Have postgraduate qualifications (or equivalent experience) in either science or health sciences, technology, engineering or mathematics
  • Women from rural and remote areas, culturally diverse backgrounds, of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin and those with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply

“The WILD Program came along at the perfect time in my career. It was an intensely rewarding experience that gave me extra confidence in skills I’d already been exercising in my role leading a commercial laboratory. The added bonus has been the creation of a close-knit group of women that are wonderful at sharing their expertise and amazing skill sets”
