Visiting Canterbury Fellowships may be awarded to distinguished scholars from overseas who speak the English language fluently in the schools/departments within the College of Arts, the College of Education, Health and Human Development and the School of Law that do not have access to the Erskine Fund, for the purpose of giving lectures in such subjects to students at the University of Canterbury. Nominations of visitors of wide interest are encouraged.
In each yearly round there is a total allocation of five fellowships and/or grants and nominations from eligible schools/departments assessed by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) on a competitive basis. Applications are called for each February with a closing date end of April. Decisions are expected to be notified to all applicants in August/September. Applications forms are available on the intranet for UC staff only.

When appropriate, a second airfare will be offered for a spouse, partner, or another immediate family member for a minimum visit, excluding travelling time, of 28 continuous nights during the period of the Fellowship proper. The person need not travel with the visitor in either direction. The University does not remit cash overseas for travel purposes or make cash reimbursements for visitors' travel.
