Erskine Visitors

The Erskine Fellowships are used to bring distinguished visitors from around the world to University of Canterbury, including the Department of Economics and Finance. Visitors under the Erskine scheme receive a return economy airfare (as do partners of Fellows subject to some conditions) and a per diem allowance for the duration of their visit. Fellows normally stay for between one month and three months. The department has up to five Erskine visitors each year.
