2023 The Breakthrough Junior Challenge is an annual global competition for students to inspire creative thinking about science.


You get it. You've grasped an important scientific theory, concept, or principle. Now can you share your insight?

An inventive video can get across complex material that would take pages of text to communicate. To take part in the Breakthrough Junior Challenge, create a short video (2:00 – two minutes max) to explain a big idea in one of these fields:

  • Physics
  • Mathematics
  • Life Sciences

Your film can take any form you like: animation, talking head, documentary, dramatic reconstruction, whatever. It's worth keeping in mind that video is a dynamic visual medium – using diagrams, simulations, physical demonstrations etc. is a lot more effective than standing in front of a blackboard talking.

Application Deadline June 25, 2023

Type: Challenge/Contest

Eligible Countries: Worldwide

Award Value: If your video is chosen as the Winner, you will receive:

  • $250,000 Post-secondary scholarship
  • $50,000 Prize for your teacher
  • $100,000 Breakthrough Science Lab

DICE International Scholarship at University of Kent, UK – 2023; In many tropical counties, wildlife is hunted for meat (i.e., ‘wild meat') and other body parts, supporting the diets, customs, and livelihoods of millions of people. However, unsustainable hunting is one of the most urgent threats to wildlife and ecosystems worldwide and has serious implications for people whose subsistence and income are tied to wild meat. Furthermore, the demand for wild meat in urban areas contributes to the unsustainable hunting of wildlife in rural areas and remains a significant challenge to biodiversity conservation.

The candidate will join an applied conservation research group with expertise on the hunting, consumption, and trade in wildlife (hereafter referred to collectively as ‘wildlife use'), and on pangolins. Focusing on sub-Saharan Africa (particularly West and Central Africa), the candidate will conduct advanced statistical methods to identify the factors that shape wildlife use. The candidate will either focus on all species used for wild meat or on African pangolins – please note this project is about local use, not international trafficking. They will also have the opportunity to contribute to the group's new research programme aimed at understanding wildlife use in urban areas.

Application Deadline: 11th May 2023 23:59 (UK time)

Eligible Countries: International

Type: PhD

Value of Award: This is a fully funded project for UK students, we do welcome applications from international students, but additional tuition fees apply (evidence of extra funding needs to be provided in the application cover letter).
