Applications for the ABRS Churchill Fellowships are NOW CLOSED.

The ABRS has again partnered with the Trust to offer two fellowships in 2015 to undertake overseas taxonomic research on the Australian flora and fauna.

The Fellowships ($25 000 each) available are:

  1. One for an early career researcher
    Applicants who have completed their tertiary studies (Honours, Masters, Ph.D. equivalent) within the last 10 years (no earlier than 2005), and;
  2. One for an established career researcher
    Applicants who have completed their studies prior to 2005 and are well established in their field.
