Australia-Harvard Fellowships are aimed at innovators who are normally based at Harvard and wish to collaborate with Australian researchers and educators, and similarly for Australian researchers to follow-up at Harvard.

The Fellowships are offered by the Harvard Club of Australia Foundation which supports learned exchange between Harvard University and Australia. The Foundation seeks to attract applicants whose work will bring clear benefit to Australia as well as the University.

Australia-based applicants become eligible when they can demonstrate significant value in working at Harvard with a former inbound Fellow, and have the intention to bring advances back to their Australian institutions.

Anyone interested in applying should contact Rebecca Griffin as soon as possible.

Closing date: 23 September 2013
