Follow-up awards

There are a number of exciting follow-up awards available to Sylff fellows. Find out more at the links provided below:

Sylff research abroad

Two application rounds – usually in January and July.

Sylff Research Abroad is for current or past Sylff recipients who are currently enrolled in a PhD programme, to engage in research at any foreign organization(s) or even without a host organization in case of fieldwork. A "foreign" country is defined as those where the applicant is not living. Note: This could include a past Sylff masters recipient who is now enrolled in a PhD in another country and needs to travel abroad (even back to NZ) for their research.

See some examples of successful projects, including two from our previous fellows Verena Boshra (2013-2) and Alice Beban (2013-1).

Sylff Leadership Initiative

The Sylff Leadership Initiative award is for current or past Sylff recipients to run a forum (academic or otherwise) with a social action focus. Applications can be submitted at any time for grants of up to $10,000US.

NZ fellow Dr Jaimee Stuart has recently received a Sylff Leadership Initiative award to run a workshop "Bullying: Identifying effective prevention and intervention strategies" as part of the Australasian Human Development Association conference in Wellington in July 2015. A report on this will be posted soon after the event.

See more examples of successful projects.

Sylff fellow forum

For three years from 2015, Sylff institutions can apply for funds to run a forum for current and past fellows with themes relevant to the current global situation exploring fundamental issues affecting people e.g. the promotion of sustainable lifestyles.
