MEDIA RELEASE: Monday, 18 September 2017: SURVEYORS CHANCE TO GAIN AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE
The NSW Government announced today the continuation of the NSW Surveyor General International Fellowship Program.
The Fellowship Program provides an opportunity for surveying and spatial professionals to develop their career and pitch innovative ideas to a panel.
With one Fellowship offered per year, the successful candidate will receive a one-off grant of $15,000 to put towards international professional development and research opportunities at their own discretion.
NSW Surveyor General, Mrs Narelle Underwood said Spatial Services is heavily reliant on surveying and spatial skills, and encourages people to put their ideas forward and get involved.
“Previous recipients have provided innovative contributions to Spatial Services and the wider surveying profession. Some examples include the impact of natural disasters on cadastral (land) boundaries, and how positioning technologies can assist rural and developing areas,” said Mrs Underwood.
“We encourage surveying graduates and related disciplines to submit their proposals and become an innovator within their field. It’s also a great opportunity for surveying and spatial professionals to expand their network and further their education.”
Applicants are required to submit a written application outlining their proposed research and potential outcomes. Applications will be judged by merit of the proposal and merit of the applicant.
The closing date for applications is Friday 1 December 2017. Applicants are encouraged to visit the Spatial Services website at www.spatialservices.finance.nsw.gov.au for further information.
