This fellowship was established to support visits by outstanding external academics to contribute towards building a culture of research excellence and actively participate in University life for 1-2 months. Fellows will be nominated by each College on rotation.

Fellows will be expected to lead at least one major event during the fellowship (conference, forum, symposium) to be developed in discussion with the hosting College and AuSI. Fellows are expected to take an active role in campus life and will be in residence at University House for the duration of their fellowship to increase opportunities for engagement. Fellows will also be expected to lead the conversation at a monthly ANU Visiting Fellows Dinners
