A new pre-application process for the approval of applicants to apply for externally funded fellowships across all schemes and career stages, has been put in place for the remainder of 2020.

The aim of this is to strengthen the competitiveness of our fellowship candidates, which is made more pertinent by the financial challenges UOW faces due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This new process for fellowship applications will also ensure new changes made to eligibility extensions by funding agencies are addressed consistently and that UOW’s commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is reflected in all applications.

Pre-application assessment process

To identify fellowship candidates to progress to full application, the new Fellowship Pre-application Assessment Process is three-staged, including: (1) a Pre-application self-assessment form; (2) Faculty Review; & (3) DVC(R&I) Review.

This new process will apply to the following schemes:

  • ARC DECRA 2022
  • ARC Future Fellowships 2021
  • ARC Laureate Fellowships 2021
  • NHMRC Investigator Grants 2021

Templates and timetables

Pre-application templates and Timetables for all fellowships will be disseminated by faculties and are available on the RAID intranet site. Faculties will provide a list of endorsed candidates to the RSO for the DVCR&I’s consideration as follows:

  • Laureates – 28 August 2020;
  • DECRA – 4 September 2020;
  • Future Fellowships – 11 September 2020; and
  • Investigator Grants – TBA.
