Scheme/ Round

Future Fellowships 2014

This is an additional Future Fellowships round where 150 Fellowships will be awarded. It is anticipated this will be the final time this scheme in its current format will run, and so is expected to be particularly competitive.


The objectives of the Future Fellowships scheme are to:

  • attract and retain outstanding mid-career researchers;
  • build collaboration across industry and/or research organisations and/or disciplines;
  • support research in national priorities that will result in economic, environmental, social, health and/or cultural benefits for Australia; and
  • strengthen Australia’s research capacity by supporting innovative, internationally competitive research.

Funding Amounts

A Future Fellowship may be requested at one of three salary levels. An Administering Organisation may be awarded up to $50,000 of non-salary funding per annum which may be used for infrastructure, equipment, travel and relocation costs directly related to the Future Fellow’s research.
