The Mozart Fellowship 2025-2400366



The Fellowship was established by the University Council in 1969 and was made possible by the generous interest of anonymous friends of the University. The general purpose of the Mozart Fellowship Fund is to aid and encourage composers of music in the practice and advancement of their art, to associate them with the life of the University, and at the same time to foster an interest in contemporary music within the University and in the community.

The Fellowship duration is 1 February 2025 to 31 January 2026. The stipend for the Fellowship is equivalent to a Lecturer’s salary and may include a contribution to travel/removal expenses. The salary is payable in fortnightly instalments.
