Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship – Wild Card Competition

Last week saw the launch of the 2017 Wild Card competition to find two exceptional students from anywhere in the world to join next year’s Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship programme.

The Fellowship is the only postgraduate (aka graduate U.S.) programme on the circular economy– an economic framework, which decouples economic growth from resource constraints. It takes a multidisciplinary approach across design, engineering and business with industry-specific input from a network of over 100 leading companies, governments, cities, regions and other organisations working to accelerate the transition to a circular economy in our parallel business programmes.

The winners of the Wildcard competition will join students and their academic tutors from the Fellowship’s global network of 14 Partner universities on a 12 month international programme which includes an intensive week-long summer school in London, an online learning programme accelerating skills for a circular economy, a cash bursary, networking opportunities with our CE100 businesses and development of a circular economy innovation project.
