Do you have any PhD students you know would benefit from a Summer Scholarship at the National Library of Australia? Applications close September 30.
There are up to four summer scholarships on offer. They fund travel, accommodation at University House, ANU, and a living allowance for postgraduates to spend
six weeks over summer intensively using the Library’s collections for their own research. These support research in
history, literature, the arts, humanities, social sciences, library, archival and museum studies, or biographical research.
The 50+ previous Summer Scholars all say their Summer Scholarship was a ‘life-shaping’ immersive experience.
If you are sending on the eflier (below), please forward (not cut and paste) to maintain the link to the guidelines and application form.
