The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences is supporting a student scholarship to attend the 2019 Commission on the Status of Women. In addition to travelling to New York, the program includes private meetings with policy experts, relevant civil-society organisations, department secretaries, ministers and journalists.
The scholarship place is fully funded and includes all domestic and international flights, accommodation, breakfasts, visas, insurance, and registration fees.
The CSW Scholarship is ideal for students with an interest in gender equality, women's empowerment and international development. The program has a strong international element so we encourage young Australians with a global perspective to apply.
