A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity

Our son Josh has been granted an incredible opportunity to attend the Research Science Institute (RSI) at MIT in the US, one of the top universities in the world. He is one of the 2 students selected from Australia and one of 75 in the world.

RSI is a  research intensive six-week program held from late June to early August for year 12 students. Young aspiring scientists are given the chance to conduct their own research into a topic they are passionate about at a university level, as well as learn from world-class professors that are among the most distinguished in their respective fields. For Josh, this is a dream come true!

Participation in QUT Science Program and the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) has further inspired him to pursue a future in science.    

In order for Josh to achieve his dreams, we need to raise approximately $18,000 dollars. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for your support!
