The Forrest Research Foundation Visiting Fellowship Program complements existing Visiting Fellow schemes in the five WA universities and related research institutes in order to support their current research plans. FRF Visiting Fellows are senior academics who, through their visit, will further develop international research links for WA universities and institutes. Visiting Fellows will typically have extensive publication records, and their international standing will have been recognised through their positions on editorial boards, learned societies and grant-awarding institutions.
The host co-ordinator, and the host institution, will take responsibility for arranging the academic program for the Visiting Fellow, which will typically include at least one public lecture or research masterclass that will be open to interested participants from across the WA research community.
The FRF will normally provide free accommodation in a 2-person studio apartment in Forrest Hall for up to four weeks for Visiting Fellows. The Foundation will endeavour to ensure that Visiting Fellows are drawn from a wide range of countries and disciplines. The Foundation does not normally offer support to participants of conferences or workshops.
