The Robert and Maude Gledden Visiting Fellowships

The Robert and Maude Gledden Visiting Fellowships are part of the estate bequeathed to The University of Western Australia by the late Robert John Gledden to promote and encourage education and research at the University in the fields of applied science, engineering, mining, surveying (including spatial sciences and land use planning), or cognate subjects.

The purpose of the Fellowship is to support global research collaborations by providing funding to bring outstanding researchers to UWA. Previous Fellowships have been awarded to scholars in diverse research fields, including chemical and material engineering, soil science and mining restoration, freshwater ecosystems, urban and development geography, and geophysics.

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

Gledden Visiting Fellowships are offered annually, for visits in the following year and applications are assessed by the Gledden Visiting Fellowships Review Committee.
