Call for application for the George Watson Fellowship. Established in 1978 by a gift of $5 000 from Mrs M. L. Watson in honour of her son George Watson. 

Founded in 1909, the University of Queensland is ranked second nationally by excellence in research and equal second in Australia. It is committed to providing high-quality research-led education and teaching environment. 

Description and Rules of the fellowship:

  1.  The object of the fellowship is to promote visits to the University of Queensland by scholars in any of the fields of study taught by the School of Communication and Arts in order that staff and senior students of the University may benefit from their special knowledge and experience.
  2.  The income from The George Watson Fellowship fund shall be used, normally 2 years after the establishment of the fund and at intervals of approximately 2 years thereafter, to provide for any or all of the fares, maintenance, and lecture fees of a George Watson Fellow.
  3.  After the fund has been in operation for no less than 8 years, part of the capital may be added to the income in order to provide for the support of fellows, but this provision shall not be used in such a way as to exhaust the fund before 31 December 1998.
  4.  The fellows shall be appointed by the Senate on the recommendation of the Head of the School of Communication and Arts. They shall be appointed at such time and on such conditions as to period of tenure and emolument and otherwise as the Senate on the recommendation of the Head deems appropriate in the case of each appointment.
  5. Income which in any year is available for a fellow but if not expended shall be available for the purpose of a later award except in so far as the Senate directs that accumulated income, or part of it, be added to the fund.
