The David Philips Travelling Fellowship

One of the Humanities Travelling Fellowships is named after the late Dr David Philips, historian and Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne. The David Philips Travelling Fellowship is made possible thanks to a generous bequest to the Academy from his mother, Mrs Joan Philips.

One David Philips Travelling Fellowship is offered biennially. The amount awarded is $4,000. Preference is 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. The David Philips Travelling Fellowship will be offered in 2017.

Applications Opening In February

Applications for the 2017 round of the Humanities Travelling Fellowships will open in February. To receive an alert about the opening of the scheme please register your interest via the email link below.
