Reading Australia Fellowship for Teachers of English and Literacy

The Copyright Agency’s Reading Australia Fellowship for Teachers of English and Literacy will support an experienced teacher to undertake professional skills development and career-enhancing opportunities.

The Fellowship will enable teachers of English and literacy to undertake research in a designated area that will enhance their skills and abilities in the teaching of English and literacy to Australian students. Research projects may be undertaken overseas.

This Fellowship is an initiative of Reading Australia, the Copyright Agency’s online portal to connect teachers and students with Australian literature and which provides resources for teachers to teach these important works.

The successful Fellow will be expected to write a report of between 5,000 and 10,000 words and to present their research findings at teachers’ conferences, and to their colleagues and peers.

Applications will be assessed by a panel of independent peers.

Projects may start after 14 June 2019 and should be completed by June 2020.

One Fellowship will be awarded each year.

Amount of grant: $15,000
