Scholarship Application

The WCGTC World Council Scholarship Fund will provide up to three (3) scholarships for Graduate Students and Educators to attend the World Conference in Sydney, Australia. Applicants must be members of the World Council by the time of application and show evidence of need for support.

A priority for this year is to be given to PhD students.
