Wild Card competition
The Wild Card Competition
Students of design, engineering and business from any university in the world have the opportunity to win a place, worth £10,000, on an international programme on the circular economy via the Wild Card competition, which opened for registration today (September 30 2015).
Wild Card entrants compete for a place on the exclusive Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship, which takes some of the brightest students and their academic mentors on a 12-month journey to innovate for a circular economy. The Fellowship includes an intensive week-long summer school in London for both student and mentor, an online learning programme accelerating skills for a circular economy, networking opportunities with our CE100 businesses and the development of a circular economy innovation project.
The Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship is a global higher education initiative for postgraduate students and their academic tutors from a global network of fourteen Partner Universities.
The Wild Card competition, now in its third year, extends the opportunity to a postgraduate (graduate) student and their faculty mentor, from universities outside the programme.
