Australia-APEC Women in Research Fellowship

The ‘Australia-APEC Women in Research Fellowship’ has opened for applications from select APEC economies. This new initiative will support high achieving female researchers from developing APEC economies to further their research work in Australia.

The ‘Australia-APEC Women in Research Fellowship’ will offer up to 10 fellowships per year for female post-graduate researchers to work in partnership with an Australian education institution to undertake a research project. This exciting opportunity is open to citizens and permanent residents from Chile, People’s Republic of China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Philippines, Thailand or Vietnam.

Applications for the 2015 Round of the fellowship opened on 20 February 2015 and will close on 3 April 2015. More information (including eligibility) and application forms can be found on the attached fact sheet and at here.

We would be most grateful if you could consider circulating this information throughout your networks with a particular emphasis on networks and researchers who may wish to partner with an Australian university for a short term research project.
