The 2009 Victoria Prize and Fellowships open today, 11 February, and close 
on 3 April.

Victoria Prize

The Victoria Prize of $50,000 is awarded annually by the Victorian 
Government for a scientific discovery or technological innovation, or a 
series of such achievements that significantly advances knowledge and has 
produced, or has the clear potential to produce, a commercial outcome or 
other benefit to the community. 

The Victoria Prize was created in 1998 to recognise exceptional 
achievement in science, engineering or technology. The Victoria Prize 
celebrates leadership, determination and creativity and highlights the 
many ways in which research and development of international significance 
is conducted locally.

Anne & Eric Smorgon Memorial Award
In association with the Victoria Prize, the Jack & Robert Smorgon Families 
Foundation award the Anne & Eric Smorgon Memorial Award. This award 
acknowledges the important contribution made by scientific research 
institutes in Victoria. The $100,000 award is presented to an institute 
supporting the Victoria Prize recipient in the research work for which 
he/she is awarded the Victoria Prize.

A separate nomination is not required for the Anne & Eric Smorgon Memorial 
Award. The winner of the Victoria Prize will be asked to nominate a 
research institute to receive the Anne & Eric Smorgon Memorial Award.

Guidelines and nomination forms can be found at 

Victoria Fellowships

The Victorian Government annually awards up to six Victoria Fellowships to 
emerging leaders in engineering, science or technology. Each Fellow 
receives a travel grant of up to $18,000 to undertake a short-term 
overseas study mission to assist in developing a commercial idea, 
undertaking specialist training or career development. 

Study missions offer Victoria Fellows the opportunity to broaden their 
experience, develop networks and better understand where their activities 
fit into the local and international scene. The Fellowship also provides 
an opportunity for recipients to develop commercial ideas.
