$20K Research and Innovation Fellowships Open
Thursday, 10th July 2014 at 10:36 am

Fellowships, worth up to $20,000, are on offer to those doing research and projects that expand and enhance Melbourne’s reputation as a centre of knowledge excellence.

The Melbourne Boston Sister Cities Association has opened up its Hugh Rogers Fellowships, which are in honour of Hugh Rogers – who played a key part in establishing the Melbourne Boston Sister Cities Association.

“Hugh recognised early on the importance of promoting exchanges of talented people and ideas between Melbourne and Boston in all areas of endeavour,” MBSCA said.

“The Fellowships reflect this principle and are designed to create durable links between people and institutions in Melbourne and Boston that over time enhance the intellectual, commercial and cultural life of each city.

“Thus the purpose of the Hugh Rogers Fellowships is to encourage and support innovative people and ideas by funding research and projects that expand and enhance Melbourne’s and Boston’s reputations as centres of knowledge excellence in three areas of research and practice.

“These areas of focus are; education, healthcare and medical research, and the arts and culture.”

MBSCA said depending on the quality of applications received, one or more Fellowships in each of the focus areas may be awarded.

“Each Hugh Rogers Fellowship is intended to fund a self contained, sustainable research project, of a short duration, to be undertaken in an institution in Boston,” MBSCA said.

MCSCA said the Fellowships would be awarded to practitioners and researchers in the early stages of their careers.

It said each Fellowship is intended to assist the longer-term development of the Fellow’s career by furthering their research or project and by providing them with opportunities to create new professional networks.

Applications close on Friday, August 8.  For more information, click here.
