Go8 European Fellowships
The Group of Eight offers eight annual fellowships to early career researchers in Europe to work in Go8 universities for up to six months. Each Fellowship is worth up to AUD 20,000.
The Fellowships are open to eligible researchers in Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Russia and Croatia.
The Go8 European Fellowship scheme recognises the importance of international contacts for early career researchers. It is envisaged that Fellows will continue to collaborate with Australian research partners when they return to their home institutions.

- Are under 40 years of age at the time of application;
- Are a citizen of one of the designated countries listed above;

- Have sufficient competency in English to be able to adequately communicate with researchers in their host university;
- Are eligible to obtain an Australian Visiting Academic Visa (subclass 419) or equivalent Australian visa.
The call for 2014 projects will open on 5 August 2013 with a deadline 11 October 2013. The results of the assessment will be communicated early December 2013 to enable Fellowships to commence in February 2014 the earliest.
