The Lowy Institute wants YOU!

The Lowy Institute is on the lookout for new talent in international security policy. We have just advertised this year’s Michael and Deborah Thawley Scholarship in International Security. If you are a student (preferably at PhD or MA level) at an Australian tertiary institution, with a strong interest in policy-making and analysis in the field of international security, this is an exceptional opportunity to broaden your horizons and make your mark. As recent posts on The Interpreter by inaugural Thawley Scholar Raoul Heinrichs attest, this scholarship provides direct exposure to cutting-edge policy debates in Washington, as well as involvement in the work of the Lowy Institute in advancing policy debate in Australia.

Just one piece of advice: think hard about the essay outline that you will be required to submit as part of your application. The broad topic is Australia’s global strategic interests and role. Define these how you will, but please make your proposal original, evidence-based and policy-relevant. You have until 18 June.
