What is Global Voices?
Global Voices is an independent, not-for-profit organisation. Each year they provide scholarships for young Australians to travel overseas, meet world leaders, and engage with international policy making at home and abroad.
A Global Voices delegation will challenge and inspire you. Delegates will get an insider’s look into policy making and have the chance to express their opinions and offer solutions to global challenges.
This term, Global Voices and CQUniversity are offering two fully-funded scholarships to attend:
- UNFCCC Climate Talks in June 2021
- Un Commission on the Status of Women in New York, March 2021.
Applications close Midnight (AEST) Sunday 23 August 2020. To be eligible, you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident aged between 18 to 30.

What about COVID-19?
Global Voices is committed to providing a safe development experience for all Scholars.
The Semester 2, 2020 program will be delivered as per normal, keeping in line with State and Federal Government COVID-19 mandates as necessary. The safety, health and wellbeing of the young people who participate in the program is the priority.
Should CSW65 or UNFCCC Climate Talks be cancelled, Global Voices will seek to provide an international component within a 12-month period of when the original forum would have taken place. This flexibility will allow Global Voices to look at other meaningful opportunities available to the Scholars that meet health and safety requirements (whether the experience be in person or online).
Should you have any concerns or questions in relation to COVID-19 please visit the Global Voices website.
