The Australian Academy of Science champions, celebrates and supports excellence in Australian science throughout the scientific community and wider public.
Your donations allow the Academy to continue to recognise and support outstanding scientists and their research that can lead to scientific discovery and help to create a future for scientific excellence. The Academy also funds specialist conferences, lectures and travelling fellowships to enable the exchange of scientific ideas, to promote Australian scientific capabilities nationally and internationally, and facilitate access to international research programs.
There are many more excellent projects and researchers seeking support than resources available.
The Australian Academy of Science launched the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Scientist Travelling Research Award at Science at the Shine Dome on Thursday 24 May 2018.
This is a competitive award to support outstanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scientists in the natural sciences.
The award recognises research by PhD students and early- and mid-career scientists. It aims to support the expansion and growth of their research networks and international knowledge exchange through visits to relevant international centres of research.
There are two annual awards of $5500, with additional support provided to attend Science at the Shine Dome.
The Academy is working to match the initial donation of $250,000 (to be contributed over five years) so that the future of this valuable award can be secured.
If you would like to donate to this award or find out more information, please contact Isobel Griffin MFIA, Philanthropy Manager, 02 6201 9400
