Become an Affiliate

The Centre welcomes suitably qualified researchers with interests in language and language practitioners as Affiliate Members of the Centre.

Affiliate Members will contribute to the research activities of the Centre in collaboration with Chief, Partner and Associate Investigators, and are eligible to apply for the Centre’s grants, education and travel programs. Membership as an Affiliate is for a calendar year. An Affiliate is not a paid staff member of the Centre or a Chief Investigator, Partner Investigator or Associate Investigator.


To be considered, the applicant must obtain the support of a nominating Centre Chief Investigator and be seconded by another Chief Investigator. The nominating CI will be the Affiliate’s primary contact during the term of their membership. The application should consist of the nominee’s CV and a brief statement on how their participation would contribute to – and integrate with – the Centre’s activities.

Applications are open on a rolling basis each year for membership, however please note that applications received after 28 February 2020 will not be eligible to apply for the Centre's 2020 grants.

The completed Affiliate Membership application should be submitted via the form below.
