Applications have arrived; acceptances delivered; training begun.
Some 30 young researchers have been selected to participate in the Global Change Scholars program, a joint initiative hosted by the Global Change Institute, in partnership with UQ's Graduate School.
Drawn from academic backgrounds across architecture, robotics, policy development, genomics, medicine and biomedical science, the Global Change Scholars are seen as ideal candidates for enhanced leadership training.
The scholars can expect to be exposed to the latest thinking on global change from internationally renowned academics as well as captains of industry, political and societal leaders.
In addition, scholars will profile their research through public engagement, networking opportunities and through the media, including a dedicated scholars' program on ABC Radio National's Science Show with Robyn Williams.
Upon successful completion of this program, participants receive a $5000 award.
This award is to support activities related to their PhD studies such as conference travel, professional development activities and publication costs.
