YUN LAW KOUN STUDENT AT KEDGE BUSINESS SCHOOL HAS BEEN AWARDED A PLACE ON THE PRESTIGIOUS SCHMIDT MACARTHUR FELLOWSHIP
Yun Law Koun has been awarded a place on the prestigious Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship, a year-long international programme on the circular economy for postgraduates studying Design, Engineering and Business. She will be mentored by professor Pedro Albuquerque
This year 18 students and their mentors will take part in the programme: 14 from Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship Partner Universities, two from the Pioneer University programme (University College London and Rochester Institute of Technology) and two Wildcard winners, one from Nottingham Trent University and one from Strathclyde University, UK.
Students at Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship Partner Universities apply to win a place by submitting a 90 second film. The film addresses two questions on the circular economy and is assessed on the student’s passion, creativity, inquisitiveness and understanding of the circular economy. Additionally through the Wildcard competition two students from any other university in the world are offered the opportunity to win a place on the Fellowship.
Now in its fourth year, the Fellowship includes a week long Summer School in the UK, an online support programme and a cash bursary, as well as the opportunity to link with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's wider activities and networks. The programme will commence in April 2016.
