Over the past six years the Myer Innovation Fellowship program has empowered 18 extraordinary individuals to realise their big idea. Among others, The Fellowships have supported Marita Cheng AO (MIF 2016) to power ahead with robotics, Sophie Weldon (MIF 2015) to unleash the power of belonging for communities, and Emma Koster (MIF 2017) to empower people living with family violence with information.
Now they’re looking for the 2020 Fellows. The Myer Innovation Fellowship program seeks exceptional leaders across all sectors (private, public and non-profit) and from all types of professional backgrounds. They are looking for the powerful combination of the break-through idea and the capacity of the applicant to bring it to fruition.
In 2020 three Fellows will each receive $120,000 along with up to $30,000 for operational expenses for their 12 month commitment to the program.
