Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellowships

The Institute of Advanced Studies brings researchers from all over the world to our University, thus further enhancing UWA’s global research profile.

The Visiting Fellowships are intended to support visits by individual scholars who will enhance research collaborations and research outcomes at this University. The Fellowships are designed to encourage and support research across the full spectrum of disciplines.

Visiting scholars are expected to contribute to the University’s research strategy through activities that might include, for example, collaborative research projects, development of grant proposals, workshops, masterclasses or symposia, development of emerging research interests, or, the creation of new intellectual linkages.

The Institute of Advanced Studies brings leading-edge research to the public through its high-profile lecture series. Visiting scholars are expected to contribute to the Institute’s public engagement activities with the delivery of a public lecture. It is also expected that, wherever possible, visiting scholars will provide a masterclass, workshop or symposium with postgraduate and early career researchers.

For nominations of visitors outside of the academy, please refer to the Visiting Fellowships 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.

Remuneration

Grants of up to AUD $3000 are available for Visiting Fellows. These funds are to support travel and accommodation expenses of the Visiting Fellow.

Applications

Applications for Visiting Fellowships can be lodged at any time during the year and must be submitted by a UWA-based researcher. Applications are assessed in relation to how the visit will enhance and add value to the research of UWA staff.

Applicants are normally advised of the outcome of their application within 30 days of submission.
