You do not need to submit your application immediately. You can set up a draft application form and update it, and add your supporting documentation, up to the designated closing date.

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.

In its Gender Equity Policy and Strategy 2017-?2022, ACIAR committed to achieving gender parity in its Capacity Building Program by 2020. In line with this commitment, women now comprise at least half of new JAFs. 

Completing a PhD or Masters is a significant undertaking. To ensure that our fellows have the best possible experience studying in Australia, ACIAR offers additional support through the following activities.
