Providing financial support for high-achieving female researchers from developing APEC economies. The 2017 round of the fellowship is now open.

The Australia – APEC Women in Research Fellowship will provide financial support for high-achieving female researchers from developing APEC economies to pursue research opportunities in partnership with Australian education and research institutions.

This fellowship aims to encourage the mobility of post-doctorate female researchers from the APEC region. It is designed to assist with the particular challenges female researchers face in undertaking cross-border research activities such as lack of flexibility and extra financial support for child care.

Each year up to ten fellowships will be awarded to facilitate a research project of between one and four months. Within the pool of successful recipients, two fellowships will be offered to early career researchers with less than five years’ of professional research experience.

Applications for the 2017 round are now open. The Australian APEC Study Centre will administer the fellowship, supported by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training.
