In recognition of the important role of innovation to Victoria’s economic future and the need for Victorians to be skilled in science, technology, engineering and mathematics the Victorian Government is proud to support the Victoria Fellowship program.

Each Fellow receives a travel grant of up to $18,000 to undertake a short-term overseas study mission to assist in developing a commercial idea; undertaking specialist training; or career development not available in Australia.

Additionally, Fellows can apply for the Australian French Association for Science and Technology (AFAS) Associate Award valued at up to $3,500.


Proposals that demonstrate a link to Victoria's knowledge base or technological strengths or show significant potential for innovative advances are encouraged. Further eligibility criteria see the veski website.
