2015 Short-Stay Visiting Fellowship Grants


Further Information


Nomination Forms

AcademicThe Short-Stay Visiting Fellowship Grant scheme is intended for visits by individual scholars who will enhance collaboration at The University of Western Australia, research outcomes and knowledge transfer.

Recipients of the grant are expected to offer a public lecture and a postgraduate Masterclass for the Institute of Advanced Studies.

Small grants of up to a maximum of $2500 are available for distinguished visitors who will contribute to a variety of activities during their stay. Funding is provided only for travel and accommodation support. 

Applications primarily requesting support of direct research costs that are normally the responsibility of a funding agency such as ARC or NHMRC are unlikely to be supported. IAS Short-Stay Visiting Fellowship grants are not to be used in conjunction with other IAS Program support grants, for conferences or larger programs, or for application of multiple visitors.

For nominations of visitors outside of the academy, please refer to the Short-Stay Visiting Fellowships (non-academic) for non-university-based Artists, Musicians, Writers, Activists and Public Intellectuals which is designed to develop and sustain partnerships with individuals who are not part of the formal University structure.

We encourage discussion of your nomination prior to submission. Please contact Susan Takao, Associate Director, to discuss your nomination and obtain any further information. She can be reached at or 6488 8037.


Applications for 2015 Short-Stay Fellowships have now closed. We anticipate that nominations for 2016 will open in mid-January 2016 for visits from late February – early November 2016
