Overview of the Gledden Visiting Fellowships

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 at the University in the fields of applied science, engineering, mining or cognate subjects”

PURPOSE: to support global research collaborations by providing funding to bring outstanding researchers to UWA to conduct research with a UWA host.

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

Previous Fellowships have been awarded to researchers in diverse research fields, including chemical and material engineering, soil science and mining restoration, freshwater ecosystems and geophysics.
