Career Advancement Fellowships

Career Advancement Fellowships 2020 have been awarded

These Fellowships have been 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 will be provided with salary support so they can undertake research that will enhance their competitiveness in both state and national fellowship schemes.

Providing evidence the applicant is on track with their current project/s, working in a supportive environment and receiving mentorship to achieve success in this extremely competitive sector are important assessment criteria. Accordingly, the medium-term (5 years) and longer-term (10 years) objectives of each applicant must be stated when making a compelling case to win a Fellowship.

Any queries can be directed to Research Grants Manager at
