The Yuill Scholarship has been established by the University to provide funding to support participation in the International Court of Justice (ICJ) Traineeship Program. The purpose of the scholarship is to defray the living expenses of the successful applicant while undertaking the traineeship with the court.
Applicants must: be final year students in the ANU College of Law LLB program or JD program, or recent graduates of either of the programs. Selection is primarily on the basis of academic excellence in courses relating to public international law, with proven research and writing skills. Any other related achievements or experience, including work experience, international engagement, or contribution to the wider community will also be considered. Applicants are required to submit a letter of application, and a CV.
The Court also requires proficiency in one of the Court's official languages (either French or English) and a very good working knowledge of the other.
The scholarship provides $25,000 towards the applicant's expenses (e.g. airfare, accommodation, insurance) for the 9-month period while undertaking the traineeship.
