Scholarship Program

PolicyNet scholarship program is designed to support students’ academic achievement and creativity with two awards of US$1,500 to the successful student or student team that researches, writes and publishes a paper using the PolicyNet network over the coming year.

A scholarship community has been created within PolicyNet where students can register for the program, meet research partners, find resources, and publish their papers.

Judges will use the community to assess and comment on submissions.
