Visiting Fellows & Visiting Scholars Program

Nominations have now closed for round 10 of the University of Tasmania's Visiting Fellows and Visiting Scholars Program.

The program offers Visiting Fellowships and Scholarships to support short-term visits to the University by academics, scholars and other eminent individuals, normally from outside of Tasmania. The program is designed to benefit areas or activities of strategic priority for the University by, for example: strengthening academic networks to underpin ongoing scholarly activity; achieving scholarly outcomes (e.g. publications) in key areas, through research leadership and collaborative research; enhancing the professional development of University staff through exposure to teaching and learning leaders; enhancing educational programs through collaborative teaching projects; and raising the scholarly and public profile of the University.

The outcomes for round 10 will be notified mid-late November 2014. 

Nominations for round 11 of the Visiting Fellows and Visiting Scholars Program will be called for mid 2015.

If you have any enquiries, please contact the Office of the Provost, Private Bag 51 Hobart, or email to Provost.Office@utas.edu.au.
