CAUL International Travelling Fellowship

The Fellowship was established in 2010 with the transfer of accumulated funds to CAUL from UNISON, a partnership of the university libraries of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, formed to facilitate dialogue and enable cooperation.  
A travelling Fellowship of up to $5,000 is provided competitively each year to support overseas investigations of current issues of importance to university libraries in Australia ....

The criteria for selecting the successful application are:

a.      The potential of the investigation described in the application to further the goals identified in the CAUL Strategic Plan with preference given to applications which appear likely to promote innovation.

b.      Demonstrated ability of the applicant to complete the nominated investigation. Preference will be given to early to mid career librarians with the capacity to develop as leader of the profession.

c.       Support from the university librarian at the applicant’s library including, where necessary, funding to cover any additional costs of the investigation.
