AGW Barbara Hale Fellowships

Two Barbara Hale Fellowships are available for 2020

The AGW Barbara Hale Fellowships are open to women who, being Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia, are enrolled for a PhD degree by research in any discipline at an Australian university. Only citizens of Australia or Australian permanent residents may apply. Applicants for a Barbara Hale Fellowship may apply as appropriate for any other scholarship concurrently on offer.

The Fellowships are offered annually for the second and subsequent years of a doctoral program. First year doctoral students and applicants just beginning their research are not eligible.

The Fellowship funds are intended to facilitate a research project that will extend the nature and/or scope of the currently approved PhD program and the specialised knowledge and skills of the applicant.

The project must be completed within twelve months from the official date for commencement of tenure OR by the PhD submission date, whichever is the sooner.

No later than three (3) months from the approved date for concluding tenure of the fellowship, the recipient must submit a written report on the work accomplished. The financial assistance given by AFGW must be acknowledged in any published material embodying the results of the work carried out.

For current information on criteria and conditions, go to the Guidelines. It is essential that you read these Guidelines before attempting to begin your Application.  Applications will only be accepted if made on the official Application Form. Access the Guidelines and Application Form here.

These Fellowships are funded by a generous bequest from the estate of former member Barbara Mary Hale.
