At Hughes Hall, we are dedicated to tackling one of the most pressing issues of our time – climate change – and we believe that education and research in climate law have a crucial role to play in finding the solutions our world needs. By investing in talented students who are passionate about addressing climate change, we can ensure a brighter and greener future for generations to come.
That is why we are fundraising for a new graduate scholarship in climate law for Singapore.
A graduate studentship in climate law would allow Hughes Hall to:
- Nurture future leaders in climate law: We can enable exceptional students to pursue a doctorate in climate law, equipping them to become the next generation of climate change leaders with the knowledge and skills to create an impact in the wider world.
- Enhance research and innovation: Hughes Hall has a world-class reputation in law and, specifically, climate law and governance. Following the college’s recent appointment of Professor Harro van Asselt as the first Cambridge Professor of Climate Law, a new graduate scholarship in climate law would allow us to build on this important development.
- Encourage collaboration: A new graduate scholarship in climate law will aim to foster collaboration among scholars and existing organisations both outside and inside the collegiate university. By connecting these parts, we can facilitate the exchange of ideas, best practices, and expertise, ultimately driving more effective climate action worldwide.
