I am forwarding you the e-flyer below about the 2018 NLA Fellowships. These Fellowships are the Library’s most prestigious awards, funded through philanthropy, and provide researchers with intensive access and uninterrupted time to explore the Library’s rich and varied collections in a scholarly and supportive environment.   They are open to established and early career academics, specialists, independent scholars and other professionals, for research of any type supported by the NLA collections.
I’d particularly like to draw your attention to two new fellowships being offered -
The Fellowship funded by the Minerals Council of Australia -  The Minerals Council is keen to support research that provides historical, social or contemporary context and understanding in relation to its interests and activities. The Fellowship is open to professionals and industry specialists, as well as academics and independent researchers across a wide range of disciplines. Research may include such topics as the social, economic or environmental contribution of mining, public policy, infrastructure, innovation, science and technology, resource or environmental management and sustainability, Indigenous relationships, economic diplomacy, international relations, industry and trade, security, community engagement.
A Fellowship for Curatorial Research – is for research with a curatorial, museological or archival practice focus. This is intended to lead to enhanced public access, communication, exposure and interpretation of the Library’s diverse collections, including Maps.
I’d encourage you to bring this opportunity to the attention of colleagues and researchers working in these fields.
Applications for 2018 Fellowships opened on 21 February 2017, closing on 30 April 2017.
Guidelines are available through the flyer below. Or Contact: fellowships at nla.gov.au<mailto:fellowships at nla.gov.au>
