John Allwright Fellowship

If your institution is in partnership with the ACIAR, you may be eligible for the John Allwright Fellowship.

The fellowship will enable you to start or continue research relevant to an ACIAR project in collaboration with your institution. Through a tailored study program at Curtin, you will gain the knowledge and skills you need to continue the research in your home country. In some cases, the fellowship will support postgraduate coursework degrees.

John Dillon Memorial Fellowship

If you’re a high-achieving young agricultural scientist or economist from an ACIAR partner country, the John Dillon Memorial Fellowship could provide you with career development opportunities. To be eligible, you must be involved in a current or recently completed ACIAR project. The fellowships are awarded annually.

Through this fellowship, you can develop your leadership skills in agricultural research management, agricultural policy or extension technologies at Curtin, and will be exposed to Australian agriculture operations across a range of best-practice organisations.

The fellowship is flexible and can be tailored to suit your individual needs, and those of your employer. It normally involves a five to six week period in Australia, which allows you to participate in a formal research management training course and a structured program of visits to agricultural institutions and companies.
