Churchill Fellowships

ABRS National Taxonomy Research Grant Program

ABRS Churchill Fellowships

Applications for the ABRS Churchill Fellowships are NOW CLOSED.

Following the success of our 2012 partnership with The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, the ABRS has again partnered with the Trust to offer two fellowships in 2014 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 2004), and;
  2. One for an established career researcher
    Applicants who have completed their studies prior to 2004 and are well established in their field.

Applicants who are short-listed for the ABRS sponsored Churchill Fellowships but do not receive one, may be eligible for a general Churchill Fellowship (this will be at the discretion of the Board of The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust).
