About the ADRF Research Fellowship

The ADRF Research Fellowship was established to attract outstanding recent university graduates to further their research in diabetes education and care. The program aims to develop capacity in research and evidence-based practice and 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.

The program offers a grant of up to $60,000 for one year, or pro-rata equivalent for up to two years, 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 project will not be planned or supervised by ADEA or ADRF.
