HCA Foundation: 2014 Australia-Harvard Fellowship Opportunities

April 2, 2013

Australia-Harvard Fellowships are aimed at innovators who are normally based at Harvard and have a persuasive plan to collaborate with Australia’s best science/technology researchers and educators, and similarly for Australian researchers to follow-up at Harvard.

The Fellowships are offered by 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. We normally envisage a working visit of several months, during which we encourage Fellows to interact additionally with local educators and students. Some senior applicants favor a shorter visit, but one that enables them to take a primary role in a seminar or instructional course open to numbers of Australians who work in the applicant’s specialized field. Another option is the opportunity to undertake longer studies, for example, of sabbatical duration.

Most favored will be those applicants who can demonstrate strong potential for breakthrough impacts resulting from their collaborations. HCA Foundation values highly those projects which intend to use our contribution as ‘seed capital’ for superior innovations.

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.

Australia-Harvard Fellowship grants are donated to the host Australian institutions which then administer the funds on standard terms.

Further details of Australia-Harvard Fellowship are on Harvard Club’s website or contact Fellowship Secretary, John Turner, tel: +61 2 9328 2366, email:
