Insider insights on writing winning applications

Find out how to showcase your achievements and maximise your chances of success in your next scholarship, fellowship or promotion application. 

While a solid list of academic achievements is an undeniable aspect of a successful application, the way you write about your achievements can make or break your application.

In this free, 2-hour workshop, Professor Amanda Salis will outline the key features of successful applications for scholarships, fellowships, prizes and promotions. 

Professor Amanda Salis is an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow at the University of Sydney’s Boden Institute of Obesity, Nutrition, Exercise and Eating Disorders at the Charles Perkins Centre.

She has written 18 successful applications for scholarships, fellowships, prizes and promotions for herself (including 5 NHMRC fellowships), and has also personally mentored eight colleagues to write successful applications for NHMRC fellowships or promotions. 

This workshop is for staff and students at the University of Sydney who want to optimise their applications and maximise their chances of success.

We will be advertising new dates soon. 

Please bring the latest version of your CV and any draft scholarship, fellowship, prize or promotion application that you are currently working on to the workshop. You'll have opportunities to jot down key insights on how polish your applications to be their sparkling best.

If you have questions about this workshop, please contact Professor Amanda Salis.

Course testimonial

Professor Emmanuel Stamatakis
"Amanda has reviewed two of my applications in the last few years, including my application for an NHMRC Senior Research Fellowship, and my application for promotion to Level E (Professor). Her feedback has been fantastic, very targeted, concise and thoughtful. Amanda has an innate ability to understand what review panels want to see, and I have no doubt her feedback has been critical to the success of both of these applications."
