These awards aim to attract eminent scholars in their chosen areas and will entail the sharing of gained information and knowledge with a wide academic audience and if applicable the wider public.

Value of Visiting Fellowship

Nominations must be accompanied by a provisional budget and all expenditure should be accounted for in the report submitted on completion of the Fellowship.
