Our tips for a world-class Global Voices application

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 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Forum (Paris, France, 20 – 23 May 2019)
  • A scholarship to attend the World Health Assembly (WHA) (Geneva, Switzerland, 20 – 24 May 2019)

Applications close Sunday, 17 March at midnight AEDT. To be eligible, you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident aged between 18 to 30.

If you are passionate, driven and want to make a difference in the world, don’t miss your chance to apply! Here are our top tips for a world-class Global Voices application…

Outbound exchange program in Osaka, Japan – The End

The sad part of an outbound exchange program is that the program itself is for a short term.

Random Musings of a Study Abroad Student. Part Five and The End

Imperial War Museum

Class today was at the Imperial War Museum. I spent five hours there, staying until closing, but I probably could have used another couple of hours. Most of my time was spent in the Holocaust exhibit–it was both horrifying and fascinating at the same time. Will definitely be going back to see the parts I missed today.
