Scholarship Description: The ACIAR Fellowships Scheme was introduced in 1986 to provide the opportunity for partner country scientists involved in ACIAR-supported collaborative research projects to obtain postgraduate qualifications at Australian tertiary institutions.ostgraduate studies undertaken by each awardee are based on the research work being carried out under the collaborative research project in which the awardee is engaged prior to taking up the award. However, it is important that the student’s research project forms a discrete topic related to, but not part of, the existing ACIAR project. The study program should be designed to provide the awardee with the opportunity of continuing active involvement in the project research work throughout his or her studies, and sufficient knowledge to continue the research effort on final return to their home country. ACIAR will in certain circumstances support course work postgraduate degrees.
