"Die Presse" scholarship 2010

Bernadette Serro  is the happy winner of the scholarship awarded by the daily newspaper "Die Presse" for the MSc postgraduate program ETIA – Environmental Technology and International Affairs. Although the candidates for this scholarship were highly qualified, she persuaded the jury with her high qualification and motivation. Christian Ultsch from „Die Presse“, Hans Winkler, Director of the Diplomatic Academy and the Academic Directors Hans Puxbaum and Gerhard Loibl  presented a certificate to Bernadette Serro on June 17th, 2010.
Serro will soon receive her Master in "Natural Resources Management and Ecological Engineering" from the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences (BOKU) Vienna. She spent one exchange semester at the University of Minnesota. With an IAESTE internship she went as scientific researcher to the University of Zagreb.
She is very grateful for the scholarship and looks forward to the start of the MSc ETIA program in September 2010.

This MSc Program was installed in 2007 as a unique cooperation. The first year takes place at the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna, the second year at the TU Vienna. Graduates of technical studies are supposed to get an overview about the political and legal frame of environmental technology, whereas lawyers, economists and graduates from other studies should get acquainted with the technical basics (focus on: air, water and waste as well as energy, climate and sustainable development).
Applications to the ETIA Program starting in September 2010 will be accepted until July 30th, 2010.
