The NYSF is a national program that seeks to inspire and encourage future generations of scientists and engineers, offering them the opportunity to learn what a life in the sciences can mean.   It is further aimed at equipping them with interpersonal and other non-academic skills that will give them an edge in university entrance and beyond.

Since its inception in 1984, NYSF has been held over two sessions each of twelve days, in Canberra each January.

From 2010, a third NYSF session will be held in Perth, WA.

Students for all three NYSF sessions will be chosen on the same basis and allocation of students from each Rotary District.   Students from all over Australia will attend in Canberra and Perth experiencing life as a university student, whilst being exposed to the breadth and depth of career options in science and engineering.   They will experience also aspects of research through a series of visits to laboratories and other facilities.
