Applications are now open for the 2016 Wentworth Group Science Program.
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 of Concerned Scientists has been active in advancing solutions to secure the long term health of Australia’s environment.
Comprised of eminent scientists and thinkers, the Wentworth 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; and
- 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 studying science, economics, geography, philosophy, law and/or engineering (especially those majoring in environmental science/studies/management/law or ecology) are encouraged to apply.
The scholarship funds will cover participation at a Wentworth Group Master Class in May 2016.
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.
Application forms are available at http://wentworthgroup.org/science-program/
Applications close at 5pm (EDST) on Friday 4 March 2016.
