CIGRE Australia announces recipients of the 2022 Young Professional Scholarships to the Paris Session

CIGRE Australia is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022 Young Professional Scholarship to attend the CIGRE Paris Session in August of this year.

The Scholarship provides the recipient with full Session registration and a return trip to the Paris Session, including accommodation and guided mentoring during the event to ensure that the recipient gains the maximum benefit from attendance.

As has been the case prior to the COVID pandemic, interest in the scholarships was high and many excellent applications received.
