“These scholarships, funded through philanthropy, directly support postgraduate students requiring special access to the Library’s rich and diverse collections for their research. These fund travel, accommodation and a living allowance for a period of residency of six weeks over January-February, as well as provide intensive collection access, staff interaction and special facilities in a supportive research environment. Previous Summer Scholars have generally described their experience of the Library and the collections as ‘transformative’ for their research.
These scholarships are particularly relevant for younger scholars (under 30) in the disciplines of Australian history and culture, Australian literature, librarianship, archives administration or museum studies, or for those undertaking biographical research in any field.
The Library’s Japan Studies Grants are also open for application and close on September 30.
