Words of advice from our Alumni

Choosing a research topic which is interesting, enjoyable and feasible is often the hardest part of starting a project, but make sure you choose a topic you are passionate about. Don't be afraid to think outside the box and be creative.

Registration to the new Alumni Network is open to all past finalists in the BHP Billiton Foundation Science and Engineering Awards. The network gives members the chance to connect with fellow finalists, both professionally and socially, and to stay informed of the latest news regarding the awards and alumni members.

Benefits to members of the Alumni Network include social events, electronic newsletters, access to private social media groups, volunteering and mentoring opportunities, plus more as the network expands. The Alumni Network has been made possible through support from BHP Billiton Foundation, CSIRO and the Australian Science Teachers Association.
