Fellowship funding support

ARC Fellowship Funding Support

Are you applying for an ARC fellowship this year? To help our members in these highly competitive schemes, we are awarding up to five Fellowship Funding Grants, worth $3000 each, to support their applications. A panel of senior members and recent fellowship winners will select the best five applications.

The funding will cover the following early career schemes (please get in touch if you are applying for another relevant fellowship scheme with a deadline in the last quarter of 2021 that we have not listed):

  • ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA)
  • ARC Future Fellowship Level 1

Please note that we will announce a round for members intending to apply for NHMRC Investigator Grants after the deadlines for that scheme have been announced.

Successful members will be able to state in their Fellowship application that they have been recognised by the Society and have won $3000 in competitive funding from the Statistical Society of Australia to spend during their fellowship. Receiving the $3000 award is conditional on winning the fellowship.

Awards are to be used for one application only and cannot be carried forward to future years. This is an annual scheme; previous winners of SSA Fellowship Funding Support are permitted to re-apply.

To apply please complete this short application form by 30 September 2021. The scheme is limited to one application per member. The awards will be announced in mid-October.
