Fellowships@NCB

The National Centre of Biography offers both funded and unfunded Biography Fellowships. The purpose of the fellowships is to attract outstanding scholars, nationally and internationally, to the Centre. Fellows are expected to be in residence for most of their appointment, participate in the centre's programs, meet regularly with staff, students and other fellows, contribute to the NCB's Biography Reading Group and make public presentations of their research.

For further information about either the funded or unfunded fellowships contact the Director of the NCB, Professor Melanie Nolan at melanie.nolan@anu.edu.au
