The Forrest Research Foundation

Application for 2025 Forrest Fellowships

1. Information

Thank you for your interest in applying for the 2025 Forrest Fellowship round.

The Forrest Fellowships aim to attract early-career researchers from around the world to work in Perth, Western Australia. Applicants should be leading their field of research and be driven by a desire to solve the world’s grand challenges.

The Fellowships are aimed at those who have completed their PhD in the last two years (from 1 January 2022) or who will complete it in 2024.

The Forrest Research Foundation follows the Australian Research Council’s Eligibility and Career Interruptions Statement, which recognises the impact career interruptions have on early and mid-career researchers. Please see the Statement below for further information. If this applies to you, you may submit a supplementary document with your application outlining the details of your career interruption.

For full information on the award and eligibility, please see the Fellowship Guidelines here:

Applications close 30 June.
