KATHLEEN FITZPATRICK VISITING FELLOWSHIPS
Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellowships will be offered annually from 2016 to 2020. The Fellowships are designed to enable outstanding female doctoral and early career researchers in international law, history, political theory, and related fields to visit Melbourne Law School and work with Professor Anne Orford’s Laureate Program in International Law for up to two months.
The Visiting Fellows are closely integrated into the Laureate Program, take part in events and workshops, participate in team meetings, present at work-in-progress seminars, and will be invited to participate in the final international conference in 2020. Funding of up to $3000 is available for the Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellows towards the costs of travel to, and accommodation in, Melbourne. Visiting Fellows from outside Australia are responsible for obtaining and funding any necessary visas.
The funding for the Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellowships flows from the awarding of the 2015 Australian Research Council Kathleen Fitzpatrick Australian Laureate Fellowship to Professor Orford. The Kathleen Fitzpatrick Australian Laureate Fellowship is awarded annually to a highly ranked female recipient of an Australian Laureate Fellowship from the humanities, arts, and social science disciplines. The Fellowships include additional funding for recipients to undertake an ambassadorial role to promote women in research and to mentor early career researchers. More details about this scheme to support women in research is available from the Australian Research Council.
Information about current and former Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellows and their projects is available on the Visiting Fellows page. Applications for 2019 Kathleen Fitzpatrick Visiting Fellowships will open in March 2018.
