About this scholarship

The Royal Society of Western Australia received a bequest from Dr John Glover , aimed at advancing science in Western Australia. To honour Dr Glover’s passion for science, the gift has been used to establish a research support grant program for students of natural and physical sciences, anthropology and archaeology. In wishing to maximise the impact of Dr Glover's generosity, the Royal Society has partnered with The University of Western Australia, which has created an endowment to fund the grant program in perpetuity, and will administer the grants.

The grants are named “The Royal Society of Western Australia John Glover Research Support Grants ”, and are open to students at any Western Australian university who are members of the RSWA (please visit if you are not a member yet).
