Value: A Visiting Oxford Fellow at the University of Canterbury will receive a grant-in-aid that takes account of a return air fare only (London/Christchurch) by the most direct and economical route, and a daily allowance towards living expenses (NZ$100). When relevant, a second airfare will be offered for a spouse/domestic partner or other immediate family member living at the same address for a minimum visit, excluding travelling time, of 28 nights during the period of the Fellowship. The family member need not travel with the visitor in either direction. Please note that the University of Canterbury does not remit cash overseas to visitors for travel purposes or make cash reimbursements for visitors' travel, after arrival.
Accommodation for the Visiting Erskine Fellow and immediate family member/s will be arranged and paid for by the University for the period of the Fellowship. Any additional rental along with long distance (toll) telephone calls and internet charges will be billed separately to the visitor. While every effort to meet the accommodation requirements of the visitor will be made no specific style or standard can be guaranteed.
Number: 3 fellowships each year
