Isabella Todd receives inaugural United Nations Association of Australia scholarship for commitment to global initiative.

A student passionate about environmental conservation and science was this year awarded the inaugural United Nations Association of Australia Sustainable Development Goals Scholarship at UOW.

Isabella Todd, who is studying a Bachelor of Conservation Biology (Honours) (Dean’s Scholar), received the scholarship for her outstanding academic record and strong commitment to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The scholarship is worth $8000 for the duration of a year and will help Isabella to build upon her professional development and career opportunities. It is the first of three scholarships to be awarded by the United Nations Association of Australia over the next three years to a UOW student.

Isabella said she had always been interested in sustainability and conservation but it was when she came to UOW that she began to look for more ways to make a tangible difference. Now in the third year of her degree, Isabella said the SDGs inform much of her research and study, and provide a blueprint for her to work towards in her degree.
