George Georges Research Scholarship for Undergraduates Now Open!

1 Apr 2019

Now open to undergraduate students in studies or programs associated with the Asia Pacific Centre for the Reponsibility to Protect.

The purpose of the Scholarship is to support an undergraduate student seeking to undertake a research project in an area relating to peace, nuclear disarmament, trade unionism, environmentalism, social justice, human rights, or other areas that reflect the values and goals of the late Senator George Georges.

The scholarship is supported from an endowment established through gifts from the Palm Sunday Rally for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament, and many individual and organisational donors, in recognition of the life and achievements of Senator George Georges. When the Palm Sunday Rally for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament organisation ceased operations, the George Georges Scholarship Support Committee assumed responsibility for managing these functions.

Applications close 10 May.
