Community Fellows Program

The Community Fellows Program aims to meet the research needs of community organisations to conduct small research-related projects in collaboration with university researchers.

At least ten Community Fellowships are expected to be offered, to commence in early 2021.

This year the Institute is collaborating with a number of research groups at the University of Melbourne to provide specific Fellowship opportunities, which include:

  • Two Fellowships for people who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. The Fellows should also be from an Indigenous community organisation or be focusing on an Indigenous topic. The Fellows will be jointly supported by the Melbourne Social Equity Institute and the Indigenous Knowledge Institute.
  • One Fellowship for a person with lived experience of disability – the Fellow will be jointly supported by the Melbourne Social Equity Institute and the Melbourne Disability Institute.
  • One Fellowship specifically in the area of environmental and social sustainability and resilience will be jointly supported by the Melbourne Social Equity Institute and the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute.
  • Two Fellows from African backgrounds will be supported by the Melbourne Social Equity Institute through the University of Melbourne’s emerging African Research and Engagement in Australia initiative.
