To encourage intellectual exchange and build on the strong social and economic partnership between Australia and the United States, the American Australian Association Education awards individual USA to Australia Fellowships of up to AU$30,000 each year. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents accepted for full-time graduate research or study at an Australian university. Fellowships are tenable in the following fields of study: engineering, life sciences, medicine, mining, oceanography/marine sciences, stem cell research, and sustainability.
Fellowships are intended to cover only part of the cost associated with a year of research or study in Australia, and candidates must submit a budget with their application materials, along with proof of acceptance to an Australian higher education institution. Application deadline is October 15 each year.
