The Australia India Research Students Fellowship (AIRS Fellowship) program supports emerging researchers from India and Australia to undertake short-term research exchanges.
70 fellowships of up to AUD $10,000 are available, with 35 awards available to applicants from higher education institutions in each country. The program is open to eligible research students and post-doctoral scholars (early-career researchers) across all disciplines. AIRS Fellows will undertake a research project during an exchange of 4 to 8 weeks, to be completed by mid-October 2023.
The AIRS Fellowship program was jointly proposed at the fifth Australia India Education Council in Delhi in November 2019. It was launched in August 2022 at the sixth Australia India Education Council meeting, co-chaired by Australian Education Minister The Hon Jason Clare and Indian Minister of Education and Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship The Hon Dharmendra Pradhan. The program is run by the Australia India Institute and funded by the Australian Government Department of Education.
The Hon Lisa Singh, CEO of the Australia India Institute, encourages research students to apply for the new AIRS Fellowship program.
