Summary

On 18 November 2010 the Prime Minister of Australia announced that the Australian Research Council (ARC) would award two additional research fellowships in the ARC Australian Laureate Fellowships scheme. ARC Chief Executive Officer, Professor Margaret Sheil, said 'the new fellowships are specifically designed to address the current low proportion of applications to the scheme by female researchers'.

The two fellowships are the Kathleen Fitzpatrick Australian Laureate Fellowship for the humanities, arts and social sciences, and Georgina Sweet Australian Laureate Fellowship for science and technology. The fellowships are awarded to 'outstanding female researchers to enable them to undertake activities to support and mentor women in these disciplines'.
