The Australian Academy of the Humanities is offering up to ten Fellowships to improve the capacity of Australian scholars to conduct research in all parts of the world. Travelling Fellowships of up to $4,000 for short-term (not less than two weeks) research abroad in the coming year, are available to permanent resident scholars in Australia and working in the field of the Humanities (The Arts; Asian Studies; Cultural and Communication Studies; Classics; Literature; European Languages and Cultures; History; Linguistics; Philosophy, Religion and the History of Ideas; Archaeology) who require access to resources held overseas.
The Humanities Travelling Fellowships Scheme is one of the Academy’s most popular programmes, attracting several dozen applicants per year. The Scheme has operated in various forms since 1985, and has assisted over 143 scholars over that time. These Fellowships also incorporate two new programmes in 2009 – with preference being given to early career researchers although other researchers will be eligible and are welcome to apply:
- ‘Embassy of France in Australia Humanities Travelling Fellowships’ for travel to France;
- ‘Ernst Keller European Travelling Fellowships’ for travel to Europe.
The application form for the Humanities Travelling Fellowships is common to all three Fellowships, and they are governed by the same rules, with the exceptions noted for each individual Fellowship on the AAH website – http://www.humanities.org.au/Grants/HTF/HTF.htm
Applications should be submitted to Julia Bouwens in the Research Office by 24th July 2009 – via jbouwens at usyd dot edu dot au
