ANU College of Medicine, Biology & Environment commemorates the life of Anjeli Nathan, a fallen naturalist and a brilliant young student who died in a car accident in the field of work in South Africa. Each year, in memory of her life and her love for knowledge, the school offers a scholarship grant which is Anjeli Nathan Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship program provides assistance to the student either to undertake higher degree of specializations or to have fieldwork experience after the successful completion of the degree with Honours.

The team of evaluators will not consider projects involving long-term captivity, killing or surgery on animals . Preference in the selection of applicants is based or co-supervised in the Division of Ecology, Evolution and Genetics during their Honours year.
Student applicants are mandated to submit a written proposal on Behavioural Ecology or projects in other biological disciplines that focus on Behaviour, Ecology, Natural history or Conservation. The submission of proposals to the school must be through email. The application period for the scholarship is between August 31 to December 30 which is done each year.
