studies in Australia.

About the Award: The Australia Awards John Allwright Fellowship is a scholarship offered by the Australian Centre for
 
International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) and co-funded by the
Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. John Allwright Fellowships are
awarded to partner-country scientists involved in ACIAR supported
collaborative research projects to undertake postgraduate training at
Australian universities.
 
The primary aim of the John Allwright
Fellowship is to enhance research capacity in ACIAR’s partner country 
institutions. Whilst individual awardees will benefit from the Scheme,
it is important to note that partner country institutions are the key
targets.
 
The study and research opportunities provided by Australia
Awards Scholarships develop skills and knowledge of individuals to drive
change and contribute to the development outcomes of their own country .

Eligibility: Applicants must be citizens of the country in which they are working.

To be eligible for selection, a candidate must:

    the time of applying, hold qualifications that would be assessed to be
    equivalent to at least an Australian bachelor’s degree in a discipline
    that is relevant to the proposed area of postgraduate study;
  2. be a
    scientist or economist from the developing country partner, who is
    actively involved in a collaborative research project supported by ACIAR at the time of application (in some cases, ACIAR will
    consider supporting researchers from “advanced pipeline” projects, i.e.
    in cases where a full project proposal has been approved by ACIAR);
  3. be jointly supported in the application by the Australian and partner country Project Leaders;
  4. obtain
    approval from the employing institution who must agree to the absence
    of the candidate should he/she receive a Fellowship for the period
    involved in obtaining the postgraduate qualification; and
  5. demonstrate that he/she is employed on a permanent rather than short-term contract basis.
