Become a Fellow

Gottstein Fellowship

This is the highest award made by the Gottstein Trust Fund.

Fellowships are generally of most benefit to talented people in the earlier to mid stage of their career.

The positive impacts from a fellowship are not fleeting. Indeed, fellows may experience very long-lasting impacts and find the fellowship has quite considerable value for their career. This is evident from various testimonials.

There have been 151 fellowships awarded.

In 2021 we began reconnecting with former fellows - inviting them to gather in person or virtually for the 50th anniversary of the Trust. These people make up an alumni network of talented individuals who can be found in many areas of the forest and wood products sector - including within the research community. New fellows will join the network every year.

With such a dispersed group, we intend using digital technology to host an occasional series of forums that will give interested alumni the opportunity to hear about project findings of new fellowship recipients when these are released. The fellowships of the future should have added value for the recipients because of this reactivated alumni group.

If you aspire to a Gottstein fellowship – please refer to the detailed section about applying. There is no fixed theme that a fellowship application must adhere to. You should put forward an original project idea that you can demonstrate would be of considerable potential benefit to the advancement of Australia’s ultimate renewable forestry and wood products sector.

A fellowship may be awarded to people from, or associated with, the Australian wood products and forest industries – right along the supply or value chain. The grant allows those selected to conduct a specific research project usually including a study tour.
