You can support curious minds to create new knowledge
The National Library of Australia’s Fellowships and Scholarships program enables outstanding academic researchers, younger scholars, and creative practitioners to visit the Library and immerse themselves in our unique collections.
These opportunities depend entirely on donors like you.
Each year, the Library’s Fellowships and Scholarships program enables outstanding academic researchers, younger scholars, and creative practitioners to visit the Library and immerse themselves in our unique collections.
Each of these Fellows and Scholars uses their time at the Library to delve into our collections and pursue the creation of a new scholarly or creative work.
The Library is seeking support for Fellowships and Scholarships so that a new generation of thinkers can use our collections to create important and transformative works.
Your support will sustain these opportunities, which nurture future fellows and scholars to produce new bodies of knowledge that draw on the Library’s remarkable collections.
One of our 2022 Summer Scholars, Deborah Lee-Talbot recently shared the story of her time at the Library with us, stating that:
'I truly could not have undertaken my work without the access I enjoyed as a Summer Scholar'.
