The University of Queensland (UQ) has partnered with the American Australian Association to provide fellowships for advanced research and study in Australia. UQ provides two fellowships each year: one to support an American to undertake research at UQ, and another to support a UQ student or graduate to undertake research in the USA.

The fellowships are valued at up to $40,000 each, and are intended to support part of the costs of one year of research or study. Applicants may apply for a fellowship in any field of study.
