The John Allwright Fellowship (JAF) provides scientists from partner countries currently or recently involved in ACIAR research projects with the opportunity to obtain postgraduate qualifications at Australian tertiary institutions. The primary aim of the Fellowship is to enhance scientific research capability in ACIAR partner country institutions.
The JAF program is the largest investment in the ACIAR Capacity Building Program. It provides PhD and Masters scholarships to agricultural researchers, administered through the Australia Awards system. There are approximately 38 JAFs studying in Australia at 18 universities across the country. Applications are invited annually.
