The Hazel Rowley Literary Fellowship was established 'to encourage Australian authors to attain a high standard of biography writing and to commemorate the life, ideas and writing of Hazel Rowley (1951-2011)'.
The fellowship is open to any 'Australian writer of biography', with preference being given to 'those projects that are about "risk-taking" and expanding horizons as well as those that promote discussion of ideas and make a significant contribution to public intellectual life'.
The fellowship enables 'a new proposal to be developed or an existing proposal to be further progressed. It may be used to fund research, mentoring or travel, or to progress a manuscript for submission or presentation to potential publishers.'
