What is the procedure for applying for a visiting fellowship?

Visitors planning to spend more than three weeks at the Centre must fill out a visitor application form. The application will be reviewed by the Director of the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis – the academic unit where the Centre is based. Please submit the form to our administrator Juliana Rocha.

What are the expectations from visitors?

Visitors are expected to deliver a seminar at the Deliberative Democracy Seminar Series which takes place on Tuesdays at 11 am.

Guests are encouraged to join the Centre’s weekly morning tea on Tuesdays at 10:30 am, participate in reading groups, workshops, public events and engagement activities.

They may also co-organise activities with staff and students. In the past, we held book workshops, writing retreats and methods café with our guests.

Is there funding available?

Most of our visitors are self-funded.

There are occasional calls for visitor grants, such as the University of Canberra’s Distinguished International Visitor Prize. Follow @DelDemUCan for the latest calls for application.
