The University of Otago offers five prestigious fellowships in the arts which enable talented New Zealanders to explore their creativity.
The University of Otago funds Fellows so that they can pursue their area of interest without the restrictions of having to earn an income for the year. The Fellows receive a stipend for between six months and one year, and space at Otago’s Dunedin campus to pursue their creative projects. The Arts Fellowships cater for a wide variety of artistic styles – artists, composers, dancers and writers.
Learn more about the Fellowships:
- The Robert Burns Fellowship: for writers.
- The Frances Hodgkins Fellowship: for painters, sculptors, and multi-media artists.
