MCF Academy

The MCF Academy supports and develops the next generation of climate leaders.

Climate change is a complex challenge and solutions cannot be found in just one or two disciplines. Launched in 2022, the MCF Academy forms a diverse intellectual and interdisciplinary community, drawing from all areas across the University to promote and innovate a rich exchange of ideas.

The MCF Academy offers strategic scholarships for MCF-supported PhD students recruited in priority areas. It brings together early career researchers with seasoned academics, and provides training, networks and experience for young researchers to thrive, and themselves strive for a positive climate future.

All researchers based at the University of Melbourne undertaking a PhD or postdoctoral fellowship who are working on climate-related projects are invited to join the MCF Academy. To express your interest in becoming a member, email with one page detailing your interest in joining and a copy of your resume.
