Congratulations to the two Asialink Leaders Program Dunlop Fellowship recipients, Melita Grant, Research Director at the Institute for Sustainable Futures – UTS, and Melissa Lee DeLaney, Chief Executive Officer of ANAT (Australian Network for Art & Technology).

Melita intends to explore ethical research partnerships in the Asia Pacific region, gender equality and inclusion synergies in development programs. Melita provides valuable input into Water for Women Fund activities and abstracts, as well as direct support and contributions to the Gender equality in WASH research project. 

The Sir Edward Weary Dunlop Asialink Fellowships are awarded to two individuals from the not-for-profit sector who will join emerging and established leaders on the Asialink Leaders Program. Lieutenant Colonel Sir Ernest Edward "Weary" Dunlop, AC, CMG, OBE (12 July 1907 – 2 July 1993) was an Australian surgeon who was renowned for his leadership in Australia-Asia relations. In 1993, a Dunlop Trust was established as a perpetual fund or trust with its activities occurring on an on-going basis as a memorial to Sir Edward Dunlop's vision for fostering meaningful and constructive engagement between Australia and Asia.

There are synergies between the Dunlop Fellowships and the Asialink Leaders Program as both aim to improve Asia-Australia relations through a rich personal and professional development opportunity for outstanding Australian leaders who have been selected through a rigorous application process.
