Research Fellowship

Application is now closed!

Research Fellowship Program is designed for ADEA members who want to work within universities and research institutes on a research project. It can be part of post-doctoral research or a master degree to build capacity in conducting research. A 12-month $60,000 research fellowship grant or pro rata equivalent for up to two years is proposed.

The program offers a grant of up to $60,000 for a one-year postgraduate fellowship, with the aim of developing capacity in research and evidence-based practice.

Applicants from Aboriginal and Torres Strait and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds will be particularly encouraged to apply. Successful applicants require support from their academic institution for their application. The research proposal is neither planned nor supervised by ADEA.

In general, fellowship candidates will be evaluated on:

  • Academic record
  • Suitability for research training
  • Focus on peer reviewed and publishable outcomes
  • Significance of the proposed research and
  • Suitability and support of the institution and intended supervisor(s)

Applicants can expect to be informed via email of the outcome of the application process by August 2017.
