Not sure if you are ready to apply for a Future Fellowship? Use our self-assessment tool to find out.
The OR team has developed a self-assessment tool for researchers who would like to apply for an ARC Future Fellowship (see FUTURE FELLOWSHIPS further below). The purpose of the ARC Future Fellowship self-assessment is to help you gauge your readiness to apply for this highly competitive scheme. The goal of the assessment is to be honest with yourself about your readiness to apply, identifying those areas you may need to work on to increase your competitiveness.
Expressions of Interest process
For most ARC schemes we run an expression of interest process that is well in advance of the forthcoming round/s. To find out more about the EOI process, and to download specific forms, please visit our EOI page.
