The Charles and Frank Fenner Postgraduate Research Grants

The Charles and Frank Fenner Postgraduate Research Grants were established in 2009 at the University of Adelaide, as the result of a generous gift (‘donation’) from Emeritus Professor Frank Fenner CMG MBE AC (‘donor’) who graduated in medicine at the University of Adelaide in 1938.  

Following his death in November 2010, Professor Fenner ensured the fund became perpetual through a bequest left for the continuation of these grants. These Research Grants are for currently enrolled Masters by Research or Doctor of Philosophy students in the Discipline of Geography, Environment and Population at The University of Adelaide with a preference for primary field-based research. The Grants may be used for any research costs such as travel costs, purchase of equipment, purchase of data, data collection.
