Future Leader Fellowships
Applications are now open
The Heart Foundation offers two levels of Future Leader Fellowships for PhD graduates 3-10 years post-PhD. Generous funding supports the best and brightest cardiovascular researchers as they build their research capacity and become leaders of research groups.
A table showing the characteristics of ‘typical’ successful Future Leader Fellowship applicants from the 2014 funding round can be found in the Instructions for Applicants.

Furthermore, as all applications are assessed relative to opportunity, applicants with profiles that do not meet this criteria may still be competitive.
