ISSI Fellowships offer Australians the chance to travel overseas and undertake applied international research into a topic or issue they are passionate about and enhance their skills. The research is often used in education and training, spanning many industries with the intention of generating actionable knowledge, finding solutions or developing innovative practice.
The ISS Institute’s Fellowship Program invests in Australians undertaking a form of applied research outside of Australia, often acquiring skills and knowledge not available in Australia. Our Fellowships would not be possible without the support of committed Investors who are keen to build knowledge and skills in areas that matter.
Our Fellows are talented and skilled Australians who are driving innovation and leading practice in their respective industries and sectors. ISS Institute Fellows willingly share the knowledge and skills acquired during their Fellowship upon their return to Australia through detailed Fellowship Reports and dissemination activities. ISS Institute is honoured to support our diverse range of Fellows, all of whom are working to make a real difference in Australia.
Fellowships are offered across a number of Fellowship Rounds each year. The Fellowships available each year differ according to the skills focus area, the industry area and criteria established by the ISS Institute and the Fellowship Sponsor.
Information about each Fellowship is provided to assist you to determine if your research / skills enhancement area fits the Fellowship criteria. More detailed information is provided in the Fellowship Application Guidelines and Fellowship Application Form provided for each Fellowship.
