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:
- A scholarship to attend the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW64) in New York, USA in March 2020.
- A scholarship to attend the 2019 UNFCCC Climate Talks (COP25) in Santiago, Chile in December 2019.
Applications close Sunday, 4 August at midnight AEDT. To be eligible, you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident aged between 18 to 30.
