Spitfire Memorial Defence Fellowship
Sciences & Engineering
Fellowships & Awards
The Spitfire Memorial Defence Fellowship was established by ex-wartime Spitfire pilots and ground crew led by Ted Sly, the Australian Spitfire Association and leading private and corporate supporters. The aim was to create a lasting and dynamic memorial highlighting the important contribution of the Spitfire and its Squadrons during World War II. Through the combined efforts of those involved, the capital of the Spitfire Memorial Fund has reached approximately $480,000. The interest on this capital provides for the annual Fellowship, currently valued at $18,000. The recipient must undertake a defined program of research which will contribute to the defence of Australia.
Applicants will be Australian citizens who are suitably qualified graduates or persons with significant relevant work experience.
Up to $18,000
