Since 2002 we have received more than sixty applications from community members and over twenty Fellowships have been awarded.
A selection panel of community and university members meet each year and review each application. Short-listed applicants are then interviewed and a final decision is made based on these interviews.
Since its inception, the Fellowships have been awarded to projects that fall into four key research areas: agricultural innovation, cultural diversity, food security and ecology.
Agriculture is a powerful resource for promoting sustainable development and is a resource that must be constantly renewed through knowledge and innovation.

Cultural diversity refers to the quality of diverse or different cultures. Projects within this area can be inclusive of the arts but must promote cultural interaction, learning and wellbeing.
