1. Mentor Application

Expressions of interest are sought from women and men working in agricultural research or closely related areas to participate as a Mentor for women awarded a Meryl Williams Fellowship to participate in a women's leadership program sponsored by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).  

We are seeking experienced leaders in agricultural research and/or administration to Mentor women who are successful in gaining a Meryl Williams Fellowship.  Recipients of the Meryl Williams Fellowship will attend a 3-week workshop in Australia in early 2021 (subject to the easing of current travel restrictions), conducted by the University of New England, and have the opportunity to undertake a professional internship in Australia for up to 3 months.  Each Fellow will be assigned a Mentor to help them in their leadership journey.   Mentors will attend a workshop to be held in Sydney in early 2021, with all expenses paid.

Expressions of interest should be submitted using this form if possible.  The form does not need to be completed in one sitting, as the details will be saved as you complete the various sections.  However, please note that you can only resume completing the form if you are using the same computer (with the same IP address) each time. 

Once complete, press 'Submit'.  Note that you can still change your responses even after the form is submitted, right up until the closing date. 

If you are not confident of being able to use the same computer each time you access the form, or have problems accessing the internet, you can download a copy of the form from the Mentors page of the GEAReD website at www.geared.global and then email the completed form to geared@coffey.com
