Career Advancement Fellowships
The inaugural Career Advancement Fellowships were awarded in 2020.
These Fellowships were designed to nurture talented early to mid-career researchers, who are associated with the RPH Research Foundation, by enabling them to make vital progress along their chosen career paths. Successful applicants are provided with salary support so they can undertake research that will enhance their competitiveness in both state and national fellowship schemes.
Five Career Advancement Fellowships are currently being funded by the RPH Research Foundation. Successful applicants are provided with three years of salary support as they undertake cutting-edge research projects in their fields of expertise.
As the Foundation is currently supporting five fellows, we are not accepting new applications at this stage. However, for more information about the fellowships queries can be directed to the Research Grants Manager at email@example.com
