Faculty Visiting Researcher Scheme 2019

The Faculty Visiting Researcher Fellowship Scheme is currently closed.

The Visiting Researcher Fellowship Scheme is targeted at researchers of very high standing relative to their career stage, and who are invited to Macquarie University by a Faculty academic staff member for a short period of time. The Faculty will provide up to $5,000 for each visitor to help cover the costs of the visit, depending upon length of stay and travel costs. All visitors to Macquarie University, who are not Australian citizens or permanent residents, must hold a valid visa.

Please note that the signatures are no longer required on the Application form. Submission of the application through Pure is equivalent to the Host signature. Please attach correspondence from the Visitor confirming that they are accepting the invitation to visit Macquarie University. All applications will be approved through Pure by Heads of Departments.
