The AIIA China Matters Fellowship is an investment in the next generation of Australian China specialists. The Fellow, appointed for a two-year term, will publish well-researched and publicly accessible reports on developments in the PRC which are especially relevant to Australia. She will regularly publish opinion pieces in mainstream media and contribute in other ways to the public debate about the PRC and Australia-China relations.

The AIIA China Matters Fellowship will help develop a better understanding of international affairs among Australians and add depth and alternative views to the vital debate about Australia’s relationship with the PRC.

The Fellowship is funded entirely by donations from Australian citizens and from wholly Australian-owned and -controlled companies or foundations. For a list of founding donors and supporters click here.
