“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. These support scholars and researchers resident in Australia whose work in any field would benefit from access to the rich Japanese language and Japan-related collections of the National Library. Grants are offered for periods of up to four weeks. These are available to established and early career scholars and to PhD students.

About anzlhswebsite

The Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society was formed in 1993. It is an interdisciplinary group of scholars who share an interest in the connections between law and history. The society grew out of the annual Law in History Conferences, which have been running since 1982. Members of the society include historians, lawyers, academics and others interested in the area. Most of the members live in Australia or New Zealand, but their areas of interest are not confined to the law in those places. The society is an incorporated association in New South Wales.
