The Fellowship commemorates the work of Hazel Rowley (1951-2011), one of the world’s leading biographers, who left behind a legacy of great writing, a passion for words and for exploring the lives and relationships of exceptional men and women.
The focus is on biography, but extends to an aspect of cultural or social history compatible with Hazel’s interest areas. For more information visit hazelrowley.com.
Up to $15,000 will be awarded for travel and research to further a writing proposal or work in progress.
Preference will be given to projects that are about ‘risk-taking’ and expanding horizons, promote discussion of ideas, and make a significant contribution to public intellectual life.
