The Forrest Research Foundation attracts outstanding minds to Western Australia to undertake high quality research with the potential to change the world.

The Foundation was established in 2014 following one of the largest ever philanthropic donations in Australian history, of $65 million by Andrew and Nicola Forrest through the Minderoo Foundation. The donation is used to drive research and innovation capacity in Western Australia by awarding Forrest Scholarships to outstanding young intellects from around the world to conduct research at one of Western Australia’s five universities – The University of Western Australia, Murdoch University, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University and University of Notre Dame.

Forrest Fellows are outstanding researchers of exceptional ability and resourcefulness, having the highest calibre of academic achievements and with the potential to make a difference in the world. Forrest Fellows will help drive research and innovation capacity in Western Australia.

Forrest Fellows will reside in Forrest Hall and provide valuable mentoring Forrest Scholars and provide leadership to the Forrest Research Foundation.

To be eligible, applicants must have completed their PhD within the last 2 years or be in the final year of their PhD.
