2023 APEC-Australia Women in
Research Fellowship (CLOSED)
THE APEC-AUSTRALIA WOMEN IN RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP 2023 ROUND HAS CLOSED.
The APEC-Australia Women in Research Fellowship, initiated by the Australian Government, aims to support economic and technical cooperation to address the many challenges and opportunities that face the region.
This fellowship program is designed for women by the Australian Government to offer 20 women researchers from developing economies up to AU$20,000 each, to work in partnership with an Australian education institution to undertake a research project over one to three months. This round of the fellowship aims to support women’s economic empowerment in the APEC region and human capital development in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)-related fields in developing economies.
Since 2015, the APEC-Australia Women in Research Fellowship has helped many women in STEM fields by providing them with opportunities to work with professionals from reputable Australian research institutions and is specifically designed to assist with the particular challenges women in research face in undertaking cross-border research activities by providing financial support, helping them to connect with international researchers and world-class facilities, and developing a professional network.
