Although applications are welcome from project staff in both bilateral and multilateral (IARC) projects, applicants must be citizens of a current ACIAR bilateral partner priority country. Currently, these are:
1.Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands (Fiji, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Tonga, Samoa, Kiribati)
2.South East Asia (East Timor, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Philippines)
3.South Asia (India, Bangladesh, Pakistan)
4.Northern Asia (Western China)
5.the Republic of South Africa and other African countries with ACIAR projects

Applicants must also be citizens of the country in which they are working.

To be eligible for selection, a candidate must:
a).at the time of applying, hold qualifications that would be assessed to be equivalent to at least an Australian bachelor’s degree in a discipline that is relevant to the proposed area of postgraduate study;
b).be a scientist or economist from the developing country partner, who is actively involved in a collaborative research project supported by ACIAR at the time of application (in some cases, ACIAR will consider supporting researchers from "advanced pipeline" projects, i.e. in cases where a full project proposal has been approved by ACIAR);
c).be jointly supported in the application by the Australian and partner country Project Leaders;
d).obtain approval from both the employing institution and home government training authority who must agree to the absence of the candidate should he/she receive a Fellowship for the period involved in obtaining the postgraduate qualification; and
e).demonstrate that he/she is employed on a permanent rather than short-term contract basis.

Criteria for selection reflect the aim of the Fellowship Scheme to enhance the research capacity of ACIAR’s partner country institutions. Thus, strong preference will be given to a candidate who:
1.can demonstrate that the studies he/she proposes to undertake under the award will be relevant in the short term to the general thrust of the research supported by ACIAR; the longer term, will significantly benefit the candidate’s employing institution in the partner country;
3.can demonstrate through the Australian Project Leader that placement for him or her at an appropriate tertiary institution can be assured subject to the candidate being awarded a Fellowship;
4.can demonstrate that the Australian Project Leader together with other co-supervisor if appropriate will be responsible for monitoring the awardee’s academic progression for the duration of his or her study in Australia;
5.can demonstrate that he/she has a sufficiently high level of English to be accepted into an Australian tertiary institution (English language testing can be arranged through the Country Manager). If the results of English testing suggest that limited additional training is required in order to be accepted into an Australian tertiary institution (e.g. the applicant has a least an IELTS score of 5 for each of speaking, listening, reading and writing), ACIAR may provide support for limited English training in the home country of the Fellowship applicant. ACIAR will support at most six months English training, and it is expected that any formal training supported by ACIAR will be complemented by the applicant's private study; and under 40 years of age at the time of the application.  auto insurance.
