Researchers are now invited to apply for the 2017 National Library of Australia Fellowships.

A total of six funded fellowships will be offered in 2017 to researchers from Australia and overseas and established or emerging scholars. The fellowships support researchers using the National Library of Australia’s 10 million-item-strong collection.

With its world-class collection of books, manuscripts, photographs, oral histories, music and maps, the National Library of Australia is a hub for research, intellectual and creative endeavour. Fellowship recipients enjoy in-depth access to this rich collection and to the Library’s expert staff, a supportive working environment and financial assistance.

Applications close 2 May 2016.
