Visiting Fellows


Each year the US Studies Centre offers a number of stipends for academics to take leave from their home institutions and spend 1-12 months in Sydney. It is an opportunity for scholars to make progress on a serious writing project, engage with the Centre's academics and interact with the larger Australian academic community.
