Hood Fellowships 2017 - Outgoing Fellowships 2017

Applications for outgoing Hood Fellowships are now OPEN 

The Hood selection panel wishes to encourage applications for outgoing fellowships and has extended the deadline for outgoing fellowship applications only until Friday 9 June 2017.

Hood Fellowships provide opportunities for our leading researchers at associate professor and professor level to explore or further collaborations with scholars overseas and to showcase their expertise in the institutions they visit. The Hood Fellowship fund provides full cost and support for outgoing fellows, covering airfares, accommodation and travel expenses. Please note, fellowships cannot be combined with research and study leave. 

If you wish to apply, please follow the instructions below.

Applications for the next round of incoming and outgoing Hood Fellowships are now OPEN

The Hood Fund will provide annually a number of Fellowships across all Faculties. Dr John Hood’s vision was to enable The University of Auckland’s best academics and up and coming researchers to visit leading overseas institutions and to bring the best academics from other leading institutions to visit our University.

Value Of Hood Fellowships

Each Fellowship will be worth up to $20,000. The grant must be used to cover all accommodation, travel and general expenses, including one reception/dinner in honour of incoming Fellow. Those nominating or applying will be required to present a provisional budget with their nomination/application, and all expenditure should be accounted for in the report submitted on completion of the Fellowship.


All Applications for Hood fellowships will need to be submitted electronically through the Research Funding Module (RFM). Please select ‘The University of Auckland Foundation’ & ‘Hood Fellowship’ when inputting the scheme and sponsor.
