The Moran Award for History of Science Research

Status

The call for applications will open in February 2018.

Details

This award is aimed at postgraduate students and other researchers with expertise in the history of Australian science. Its purpose is to support access to archives that record the history of science in Australia, especially by younger researchers, and it can be used towards travel and accommodation costs.

A total of $2,500 (GST exclusive) is available each year. This will generally be awarded to one person, but may be split between candidates at the selection committee’s discretion.

Apply

Applications should be limited to three pages and include a curriculum vitae, a brief outline of the proposed project and the archives to be consulted, and a budget. Please attach two referees’ reports to your application.

Applications are considered carefully by a committee of scientists with diverse expertise. The decisions of the committee are based on the assessed competitiveness of the proposal. The Academy is not able to enter into discussion or correspondence regarding the reasons why an application is successful or not. 

The Australian Academy of Science encourages applications from female candidates and from candidates from a broad geographical distribution.

Proposals must be submitted by email to awards@science.org.au or by mail to:
