The Apollo Visiting Fellowship 2015

Value: AUS $4,000

Background and Aims: Thanks to the generosity of Alumni of the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, the Department of Archaeology is able to invite applications for the Apollo Visiting Fellowship. The purpose of the Fellowship is to enable a scholar of Classical Archaeology to come to Sydney to consult with academic experts in their field and to work on their research at the Centre for Classical and Near Eastern Studies of Australia at the University of Sydney for a concentrated period.

Terms and Conditions

The Fellowship is open to scholars of any country who are within five years of the award of their PhD.

The sum of AUS $4,000 is intended to serve as a total contribution toward the costs of travel to and accommodation in Sydney for the period of the Fellowship. The Fellow may determine the length of the stay but will be expected to remain for a minimum of two weeks. The stay should coincide with an academic semester (roughly: March-June; August-November). Office space will be made available for the Fellow in CCANESA. The Fellow will be asked to give a seminar and a lecture.

Please note: The cost of short-term rental accommodation in central Sydney is high by international standards.

– a 500-word description of the research to be undertaken in Sydney – an academic CV
– names and contact details of three referees

Submissions should be sent by email to Dr Bernadette McCall, CCANESA Research Administrator:[email protected], with “Apollo Fellowship” and surname as the ‘subject.’

The Fellowship is awarded on the criteria of research quality and the likely value of the award to both the Fellow and the community of scholars in CCANESA, and the Department of Archaeology.
