The John Dillon Memorial Fellowship, established by Australian Centre for INternational Agricultural Research (ACIAR), invites applications outstanding young agricultural scientists or economists from ACIAR partner countries who are involved in a current or recently completed ACIAR project. The program offers 8-10 fellowships annually.
The Fellowship aims to develop leadership skills in the areas of agricultural research management, agricultural policy and/or extension technologies. This is achieved by providing exposure to Australian agriculture across a range of best-practice organisations involved in research, extension and/or policy making.
- Fellowships normally involve a 5-6 week period in Australia.
- Fellows are hosted by 1-2 Australian organisations (such as a Federal Government Department, a University, a Cooperative Research Centre or State Department of Agriculture) where they spend at least 50 % of their Fellowship period.
- Fellows participate in a formal research management training course in Australia.
- Fellows undertake a structured program of visits to various institutes, including the presentation of relevant lectures.
The agricultural scientists from ACIAR partner countries are eligible to apply.
