Curtin University is offering two exclusive scholarships through Global Voices for Curtin students to represent Australia at the ‘UN Commission on the Status of Women’ in New York, USA or the ‘UN Climate Talks’ in Katowice, Poland.

In addition to travelling to Katowice or New York, the program also includes private meetings with policy experts, relevant civil-society organisations, department secretaries, ministers and journalists. The program has a strong international element so we encourage students with a global perspective to apply.
