The Forrest Research Foundation of The University of Western Australia was established in 2014 following the donation of $65 million, over 10 years, by Andrew and Nicola Forrest, through the Minderoo Foundation as Trustee of the Forrest Family Foundation. Their donation is to assist Western Australia in becoming a world-class centre of research and innovation through attracting the next generation of outstanding intellects to this State, to pursue either doctoral studies or a postdoctoral fellowship.
Applications are now open for Forrest Research Foundation Scholarships to attract the best domestic and international students to pursue a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) at a Western Australian university as part of a package valued at over AUD$45,000 per annum for up to four years.
