Career Development Fellowships

Applications for 2020 are open Wednesday 1 May to 11.59pm AEST, Monday 17 June 2019.

Career Development Fellowships are intended for established researchers who completed their research higher degree over seven year ago and/or researchers who aren't eligible for either Research Entry or Research Establishment awards.
