The University of Sydney invites applications for the prestigious Sydney China Visitors program.


The Sydney China Visitors program offers two types of fellowship:

  • Sydney China Distinguished Fellowship will host senior scholars specialising in Modern and Contemporary Chinese Literature, Culture or Translation Studies.
  • Sydney China Fellowship will host mid-career scholars specialising in any field, historical or contemporary, related broadly to China or the Chinese world (including for example Hong Kong, Taiwan, overseas Chinese, “minorities”, as well as comparative or global perspectives).

Fellowship recipients, from any University or research organisation in the world, will carry out their research at the University of Sydney for 4 to 12 weeks, collaborating with academic members at the University's Department of Chinese Studies and China Studies Centre.


This generous fellowship will provide Visiting Fellows with a return airfare, a stipend, office space and library borrowing privileges, as well as access to University facilities and events.


Applications must be submitted by 11:59pm (EST), Friday 27 April 2018.


This program is an initiative of the University of Sydney’s Department of Chinese Studies and China Studies Centre. For more information and to apply, please visit the program page.
