Post-Graduate Scholarships for Climate Adaptation 2018

NCCARF encourages post-graduate students to participate in Climate Adaptation 2018.

The Climate Adaptation 2018 Conference will take place in Melbourne from 8 -10 May 2018 at the Crown Conference Centre. This year the Conference also incorporates Engineers Australia's meeting "Practical responses to climate change”.

We are offering five competitive scholarships to assist students to attend the Conference. The scholarship will cover registration to the Conference, travel to Melbourne from within Australia and accommodation during the Conference up to the value of $2,000. Any full-time post-graduate students are eligible to apply.

A Scientific Committee comprising academics and end users will assess the applications. Assessments will be based on:

  • the quality of the abstract submitted
  • applicability of the abstract to the conference and its themes (see the Conference themes here). 
  • relevance to the climate change adaptation community of researchers and practitioners.
Successful applicants may be asked to participate in additional activities at the Conference (e.g. early-career professional’s workshop, voice of youth presentation, newsletter profile, etc.). Applicants must be prepared to be active participants in the Conference community.
