Overview of the Gledden Fellowships

The Gledden Visiting Fellowships are part of the estate bequeathed to the University by the late Robert John Gledden to promote and encourage education and research at the University in the disciplines of applied science, more particularly relating to surveying, engineering, mining or cognate subjects.  

Fellowships are awarded to enable researchers who are capable of making a significant contribution to the research effort of the University to undertake a period of collaborative research with a UWA host.

There are two fellowship schemes: the Robert and Maude Gledden Senior Visiting Fellowship, and, the Robert and Maude Gledden Short Stay Visiting Fellowship

The Robert and Maude Gledden Senior Visiting Fellowships

The Senior Visiting Fellowships are open to researchers who have doctoral degrees or equivalent qualifications or experience, and who are mid-career or senior researchers.

Remuneration: Senior Visiting Fellowships provide a round trip economy airfare and approximately AUD$1500 per week inclusive of accommodation and a modest living allowance for up to a maximum of 90 days. Funding is not provided for accompanying family.

Applications: Senior Visiting Fellowships are offered annually. Applications normally open in January or February, and close in August of the year preceding the proposed visit. Applications are assessed by the Gledden Visiting Fellowships Committee. Applications that do not relate to the fields of surveying, engineering, mining or cognate subjects will not be considered. Applications must be lodged by a UWA-based researcher.
