52 applications from 25 countries were submitted, from which 42 were valid and have been assessed by a group of PCOM members.
The great majority of applications were of high quality and ranking them was a very difficult task.
Priority was given to passionate new professionals, who are already informed about, and sometimes involved with, the NPP network.
Team spirit, commitment and focused ideas on what the NP Programme can bring them and what they can bring to the Programme are also common qualities of the successful applicants, who will attend their very first ICA Conference next October in Adelaide. They are:
- Forget Chaterera-Zambuko, Zimbabwe
- Angela Kim Schilling, Australia/Thailand
- Laura Ioana Luca, Romania/United Kingdom
- Maria Papanikolaou, Egypt/Greece
- Anne-Flore Laloë, France/Germany
- Priyanka Kaushik, India
ICA wishes to thank all the applicants and encourages them to engage with the NP Programme and its members in 2019, and to reapply next year.
