The Gledden Visiting Fellowships are part of the estate bequeathed to the University by Robert John Gledden (1855-1927) to promote and encourage education and research in the disciplines of applied science, more particularly relating to surveying, engineering, mining or cognate subjects.
Fellowships are awarded to enable researchers with a strong profile, 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. Eight Gledden Visiting Felllows were awarded for 2015.
