Humanities Travelling Fellowships
The Humanities Travelling Fellowships Scheme is one of the Academy's
most popular programmes. Since 1985 the Academy has supported more than 150 early-career researchers to undertake research overseas.
Fellowships of up to $4,000 are available to permanent resident scholars in Australia working in the humanities.
The Humanities Travelling Fellowships also incorporate the Ernst Keller European Travelling Fellowships and for the first time in 2011, the David Philips Travelling Fellowship. The Application Form for the Humanities Travelling Fellowships is common to all Fellowships, and they are governed by the same rules, with the exceptions noted for each individual Fellowship below.
Applicants must consult the Rules of the Award before applying [Rules of the Award.pdf 120KB

The David Philips Travelling Fellowship
The Academy is pleased to announce the establishment of the new David Philips Travelling Fellowship as part of its existing Humanities Travelling Fellowship programme. This award is named after the late Dr David Philips, historian and Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne. The David Philips Travelling Fellowship has been made possible thanks to a generous bequest
to the Academy from his mother, Mrs Joan Philips.
One David Philips Travelling Fellowship will be offered biennially,
beginning in 2011. The amount awarded will be $4,000. Preference will be given to proposals that contribute to the advancement of knowledge of racial, religious or ethnic prejudice. Applications from researchers of South African history are particularly welcome; however, researchers with other areas of geographical interest are also encouraged to apply.
