The W H Gladstones Population and Environment Fund offers support for empirical research into how the size, distribution, material aspirations and other characteristics of Australia’s population are likely to affect our environment – not only our land and landscape, but also social cohesion, health, the economy and defence.
Population pressures in other countries which may have an impact on Australia could also be part of the research.
Funding & Duration
The Grant in 2018 will be $12,000 (GST exclusive).
The renewed grant of $12,000 (GST exclusive) for the second year will depend on the Academy of Science receiving a satisfactory progress report at the end of the first year. This grant does not provide funds for bench fees, managerial, visa, insurance or infrastructure costs.
Applicants should be employed in an Australian university or research institution and should have completed a PhD not more than 10 years ago.
Persons engaged in research for a PhD may also be considered if their thesis topics are judged to be highly significant. Exemptions for career interruptions may be sought from the Academy. Reasons for exemption can include (but may not be limited to) illness, birth of a child or carer requirements.
