Fellowship categories

Six funded Fellowships are available for 2019, including two exciting recently established Fellowships: one for Curatorial Research supported by the Patrons and Supporters of the Libary's Treasures Gallery Access program, and a Fellowship supported by the Minerals Council of Australia for research across a wide range of fields.

The six Fellowships available are:

  • National Library of Australia Fellowship supported by the Minerals Council of Australia
  • National Library of Australia Fellowship in Japan Studies, supported by the Harold S. Williams Trust
  • National Library of Australia Fellowship for Research in Australian Literature, supported by the Eva Kollsman and Ray Mathew Trust

Additional Honorary Fellowships may be awarded to support research and special access, but without financial support.

Who should apply?
