Current projects undertaken by the most recent recipients of the Helen & Geoff Handbury Fellowship.
Since its conception in 2002, the Helen & Geoff Handbury Fellowship Program has received more than sixty applications from community members and over twenty Fellowships have since been awarded.
Each year, a selection panel of community and university members meet and review applications. Short-listed applicants are then interviewed and a final decision is made based on these interviews.
Research themes emerging from these applications focus on culture and the arts, place and environment, technology and resources, learning and education, and work and money.
