Hunter Research Project Support Grant

James Cook University (JCU)

This grant has been generously donated by Mrs Alison Hunter, a born and bred North Queenslander from Mackay. Alison attended JCU between 1974 and 1977 and completed her BA in Geography with Honours in 1977. She returned to JCU in 1980 as a staff member, working for 15 years in the JCU Library (now the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library) in Townsville. Alison chose to give back to the University in a practical way that would benefit not only students but also the North Queensland environment, focusing on the Great Barrier Reef and/or anthropogenic and climate change impacts.


Applicants must: be enrolled in a Higher Degree by Research program at JCU (PhD, Professional Doctorate, Master by Research, Honours Year); be conducting research on the Great Barrier Reef and/or the environmental impacts of climate change and anthropogenic stressors in another environment primarily in Australia; have a primary or co-supervisor who is a member of the College of Science and Engineering’s Earth and Environmental Sciences Group.
