The Australian Youth Aerospace Forum (AYAF) is a five-day live-in conference which provides students in years 11 and 12 the opportunity to investigate careers and pathways in the aerospace industry. The forum is designed to showcase the various university and industry opportunities available to students upon completion of secondary school.
For those students travelling long distances to attend the forum in Brisbane, AYAF offers a travel equity support program to assist financially with the cost of their travel to and from Brisbane. The level of financial support provided is determined on a case by case basis, with the aim of assisting as many students as possible who might not otherwise be able to attend the conference due to financial reasons.
There are also scholarships offered to female and indigenous high school students in years 11 and 12.
