Sir John Logan Campbell Medical Fellowship - Open Now

Applications Open Now

A new medical fellowship was established in 2016 to help outstanding early to mid-career researchers further their health and medical studies overseas.

Sir John Logan Campbell, who established Cornwall Park for the people of New Zealand in 1901, also endowed a charitable trust for wider charitable purposes.

The Sir John Logan Campbell Medical Trust, which has established the fellowship, is funded by the charitable endowment left by Sir John Logan Campbell and administered by the Cornwall Park Trust Board.

Sir John Logan Campbell had been keen on advancing medicine in New Zealand ever since working his passage to New Zealand in 1840 as a doctor and ships surgeon.

The new fellowship will award $15,000 - $25,000 to early to mid-career medical researchers at the University’s Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences to support two to three months overseas study and research.

The Campbell Fellowship aims to help promising young New Zealanders and New Zealand residents deepen their studies and bring back the benefits of international professional networks, research and study to New Zealand.

Global knowledge and connections are crucial in today’s environment. The Fellowship addresses a need to help young academics grow and strengthen links with the global research and development community.

The Fellowship, expected to become a prestigious award that will benefit the whole of New Zealand research and development in medicine, will be awarded for the third time in 2018.
