ARMS - NCURA Fellowship Program 2019

Applications now open


The ARMS-NCURA Fellowship Program is a joint initiative between the two organisations and is intended to reduce barriers to global research administration and create an administrative environment conducive to global research collaboration. There is an ever increasing amount of global research collaboration and ARMS and NCURA hope this Program will create a pool of individuals who are able to build the research enterprise on the international front. For example, this may be in the area of interpreting a multitude of various sponsor requirements and assist their institution with international administrative compliance – from application submission through financial reporting and closeout. Or it may involve gaining knowledge on how to strategically identify and build international collaboration teams.

The Fellowship program has two underlying objectives:

  1. training of research administrators; and
  2. enhancing global research collaboration.

The program will provide an opportunity for ARMS members to travel to an NCURA host institution in the USA where they will immerse themselves in a program of mutual learning and knowledge exchange.

Fellows are expected to impart their experiences and knowledge of how research management operates at their institution, identify best practices at and local knowledge of the host institution, and to respect all appropriate organizational rules and cultural practices. Fellows will also be asked to present at chapter and national conferences.

For 2018, ARMS will support up to two (2) fellowships at AUD $3000 each to contribute towards travel costs. It is expected that additional costs will be borne by the Fellow or the Fellow’s institution.
