Applications are opening soon for the $15,000 World Bank Scholarship.

The ANU College of Law would like to invite you to an information session about the Scholarship on Thursday 21 May at 5 pm in the Philippa Weeks Staff Library.

Matt Harvey, an ANU graduate who works in the World Bank Group’s Integrity Vice-Presidency, will speak at the session via Skype. Matt initiated this Scholarship for ANU students. Edmund Bao, the winner of the 2014 Scholarship, will tell you about his experience living and working in Washington.

As part of the Scholarship, you’ll spend two months working as a Fellow with the World Bank Group’s Integrity Vice-Presidency in Washington, D.C. Under the guidance of the Head of the Special Litigation Unit and individual lawyers, you’ll monitor, address and prevent fraud and corruption in major projects funded by the World Bank.

Over the past few years, Scholarship recipients have worked on projects including building roads in Afghanistan; treating malaria in India; preserving rainforests in Brazil; enhancing agriculture in Ethiopia; supporting education in Indonesia; and assisting in the reform of the Ukrainian banking system.

The World Bank Scholarship is open to current LLB and JD students who at the time of taking up the scholarship will have completed at least 90 units of LAWS coded courses.

Applications open Monday 25 May, close on Monday 29 June and must be submitted through Wattle. For further details, see http://law.anu.edu.au/scholarships/world-bank-scholarship

Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you at the information session at 5 pm on Thursday 21 May in the Philippa Weeks Staff Library.
