The Max Day Environmental Science Fellowship Award is an annual award of up to $20,000 per awardee to assist early stage PhD students or early career researchers with their research. It provides funding support toward the costs of travel, courses or research expenses.
The award is named in honour of the late Dr Maxwell Frank Cooper Day AO FAA who spent a lifetime championing entomology, conservation and forestry, as well as helping other scientists. Through sponsoring this award Dr Day is acknowledging the support that he himself received as a young researcher to travel overseas to gain his PhD at Harvard. Following Dr Day’s strong belief in the strength of a multi-disciplinary approach to research, only applicants who are able to demonstrate a multi-disciplinary approach to their research will be considered for this award.
Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents at the time of application.
Applicants should either be completing a PhD or have held a PhD (or equivalent) for no more than 5 years.
Applicants must demonstrate a multi-disciplinary approach to their research work and conduct their research in one or more of the biological sciences, relating to one or more of the following disciplines:
  • conservation of Australia’s flora and fauna
  • ecologically sustainable resource use
  • environmental protection
  • ecosystem services (either provisioning services, or habitat and supporting services).
