Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and AusAID (the Australian Agency for International Development) are offering 27 John Allwright fellowships in Agriculture for applicants from developing countries to study at institutes in Australia. A maximum of two field visits for a Masters and three for a PhD are usually permitted and it is essential that the component of time spent in Australia is more than 50% (this should not just consist of thesis writing). ACIAR will pay the return international travel for fieldwork in home countries. ACIAR will not support fieldwork in a third country.
The primary aim of the fellowship scheme is to enhance research capacity in ACIAR’s partner country institutions. Although applications are welcome from participants in both bilateral and multilateral projects, to be eligible applicants must be working on an active ACIAR project in the partner country at the time of application.
An updated fellowship application form and guidelines are attached. Project leaders should ensure that candidates submit their applications on the new form.
Applications including certified true copies of academic transcripts and degree certificates should be received at ACIAR by the closing date, 31 July 2014.
Referee reports from both project leaders should be forwarded separately.
Please forward application forms and referee reports to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to +61 2 6217 0501
