Undergrad funding for unique experiences
Congratulations to Jerome, Adam, Amelia, Shane and Luke who have shared in Ecoversity Award funding in semester 2 2018.
Our students are off to Hamburg, Melbourne, Sydney and Los Angeles to attend the Conference on Sustainable Energy Supply & Energy Storage Systems; EIANZ Annual Conference; All Energy Conference; and Climate Reality Leadership Corps – hosted by none other than Al Gore!
