Grants - Australian and International

The Tax and Transfer Policy Institute at the Crawford School of Public Policy, The Australian National University, is pleased to announce our Australia/New Zealand Visiting Fellow Awards for 2017.

The Visiting Fellow will usually spend at least one week visiting TTPI, from another academic institution in Australia or New Zealand. The successful applicant will be known as a “funded TTPI Visiting Fellow” for the relevant year.

To be eligible, the Applicant would usually hold at least an 0.2 FTE position at an Australian or New Zealand University, whether as a continuing, contract or fixed-term position. It is expected that up to three Australia/NZ TTPI Visiting Fellow Awards will be granted in 2017. The decision about the Award will be made by the Director in consultation with the Advisory Board.

The Award will be for a maximum of $3,000 and will be awarded by payment or reimbursement of the following expenses of the Visitor:

• Economy return airfare from a location in Australia or New Zealand;
• Accommodation at University House or similar accommodation at the ANU for at least one week;
• Reimbursement upon receipts for meals/taxi/incidentals for at least one week.

The Visiting Fellow (Australian/NZ) will be provided with a desk, computer and library access with TTPI at The ANU during the visit. While funding is provided for about one week, the Visiting Fellow is welcome to apply to visit TTPI for a longer period, self-funded for the remaining period.

Expectations of a TTPI Visiting Fellow

The visit is expected to take place before the end of 2017.

During the visit, the Visiting Fellow will:

• carry out research to prepare a research paper on a specific tax or transfer policy topic, independently or with a member of TTPI;
• present a TTPI seminar on the research paper or another topic;
• prepare an Austaxpolicy blog article on the research paper or another topic;
