Fellowship Programs

The George Alexander Foundation is proud to support a range of fellowship opportunities for secondary school students, vocational students and post-graduates through leading national organisations.

Fellowships provide the means for talented individuals to pursue specific extended study and learning opportunities that may not have been possible otherwise.

The George Alexander Foundation currently supports fellowships through The International Specialised Skills Institute and a secondary school-level environmental science and conservation program through Earthwatch Australia’s Student Challenge Program.

Fellowship recipients are selected by their supporting institutions for having outstanding potential, drive, ideas, and the capacity to benefit their industry or the broader community through their studies and future career. 


Participating in an Earthwatch Student Challenge set the direction for my professional life and led me to where I am today. I learnt about data collection, water quality, and wetland ecosystems...Today I am in a position where these skills are the basis of my career.

The Foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications and cannot fund individuals: all our programs are offered through our partnerships with organisations, primarily universities, TAFEs and other education institutions.

To be eligible for funding, these organisations must have Deductible Gift Recipient (Item 1) status and Tax Concession Charity (TCC) status. 

Individuals wishing to apply for a fellowship must contact the relevant partner institute.
