Friday, November 30, 2012

The Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists is offering scholarships to Australian postgraduate students to assist them in bridging the gap between science and public policy.

Since its inception in 2002, the Wentworth Group has been active in advancing solutions to secure the long term health of Australia’s environment. Comprised of eminent scientists and thinkers, the Group has three core objectives:

  • Driving innovation in the management of Australia’s land, water, coasts and biodiversity
  • Engaging business, community and political leaders in a dialogue to find and implement solutions to the challenge of environmental stewardship facing the future of Australian society
  • Building capacity by mentoring and supporting young natural resources scientists and resource economists to develop their skills and understanding of public policy.

These scholarships are intended to inspire and motivate. Students with interests in natural and social sciences, law, economics, the built environment and engineering are encouraged to apply. The scholarship funds are to be used for:

  • Direct mentoring with Wentworth Group Members
  • Expenses to cover participation at a Wentworth Group Master Class in mid-2013

Note – the scholarship cannot be used as a stipend

We are seeking students committed to advancing solutions that will secure the long term health of Australia’s land, water, coasts and biodiversity.
