Organisation: The Myer Foundation & Sidney Myer Fund
The Myer Innovation Fellowships will support Australia's brightest, self-directed leaders to forge breakthrough solutions and articulate actionable ideas that compel our community to respond. Fellows will take nine months away from their current role to pursue a nascent idea that has the capacity to radically shift our approaches to the challenges facing the social and environmental sectors in Australia today.
The Myer Innovation Fellowships provide recipients with the unrestricted time and support needed to develop their ground-breaking idea into a plan for action. Fellows will each receive $100,000 for their nine-month commitment to the program along with select administrative and operational support.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step outside the routine and rhythm of everyday life and chase down an answer to the great tests we face as a nation.
