Tackling the big issues together

UniSA Visiting Research Fellowships

To answer the questions that keep us up at night, we need to invest in research. We need to invest in the brightest minds who imagine the questions, test the possibilities and provide the answers.

This is why at UniSA, we have created the Visiting Research Fellowships scheme to bring the world’s most talented minds and practitioners to Adelaide to work in partnership with our researchers, and with business and community.

We are inviting you - our supporters who also believe in the importance of research – to become an integral part of this new initiative. 

By supporting the UniSA Visiting Research Fellowships Fund, and partnering in an area of your personal interest, you have the ability to tap into the genius of some of the brightest minds in the world.

How you can bring the World to UniSA, and take UniSA to the World

The residency of each Fellowship will last for a month and will attract a stipend of $15,000 (AUD) for flights, accommodation and incidentals to meet the costs of administering the scheme, materials and access to our research facilities, and public events.

The Fellows will work in collaboration with UniSA’s researchers to generate ideas, papers, grants, and practices designed to support local and global business and community health and growth.

When you make a commitment of $15,000 per year x 5 years, the UniSA Visiting Research Fellowship will be known in your name and will highlight your fundamental support for innovation and progressing research.

UniSA will match this funding, 1:1, and will meet the costs of administering the scheme and access to our research facilities.


  • Personally name the Visiting Research Fellowships;
  • Have the unique opportunity to host the Fellowship recipients—some of the world’s most exceptional talents—at a private function or speaking engagement;
  • Your name will be included on all of the published papers generated during the visit;
  • You will enjoy a reception at UniSA with the Fellowship recipients and UniSA Collaborators, hosted by UniSA;
  • UniSA will then match each $15,000 gift received, and two Fellowships will be known in your name;
  • You have the opportunity to choose which research area you would like to support

Help find the solutions that will bring about positive change

The UniSA Visiting Research Fellowships will be transformative—not only for the recipients of the Fellowships but also for the students and research community with whom they will interact at UniSA, as well as the broader community we serve.

The University of South Australia would be delighted to provide further information about the UniSA Visiting Research Fellowships scheme.
