Dear Colleagues and Friends,

This is a friendly reminder that the University of Sydney’s 2020 Sydney China Visitors Program will close for applications on Friday 3 May 2019. 

The 2018 and 2019 programme have been very successful, and we are keen that this opportunity for 2020 reaches out to as many colleagues internationally as possible, so we would be grateful if you could circulate this to your networks.

The prestigious Sydney China Visitors program offers two types of fellowship:

  • Sydney China Distinguished Fellowship hosts senior scholars specialising in modern and contemporary Chinese literature, culture or translation studies.
  • Sydney China Fellowship hosts scholars at any stage of their career 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 in Sydney for 4–12 weeks, between February and November 2020, collaborating with academic members at the University's Department of Chinese Studies and China Studies Centre.

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