The Trust has supported one post doctoral teaching fellowship each year.
The intention of this scholarship is to encourage applicants to engage in a one year fellowship project, at a sponsoring University, directed at developing an educational outcome. A research project can be part of the fellowship provided it yields an educational outcome.
The scholarship has been in effect since 2007. The educational outcome requirement was initiated from 2008.
From 2011 awarding of this scholarship has been on a case by case basis.

Consequently, Trustees decided to merge both units and, during 2011, a Teaching Fellowship ($46,000 p.a.) was awarded to UNE for this project. This enabled UNE to negotiate additional funding of $50,000 from MLA to broaden the scope of the unit.|
