State Library Fellowship CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

What is on offer?

The State Library’s fellowships program is one of the most substantial in Australia. Each year, the Library offers Creative Fellowships to encourage the original and imaginative use or development of the Library’s collections for new work.

The Library also provides a number of specialist fellowships to support and recognise the importance of scholarly endeavour in areas ranging from children’s literature and social history to the visual arts, theatre, 19th-century Victoria and Ukrainian studies. In 2017 a new Digital Fellowship was added to the program, to encourage innovative uses of the Library’s digitised collections and data.

In 2018, for the first time, State Library Victoria is offering a specialist fellowship for researchers who identify as an Indigenous Victorian Aboriginal. This exciting opportunity aims to increase Aboriginal Victorians’ access to cultural knowledge held in the Library’s collections, by supporting researchers to identify important items and produce research material to be used by the community.

The fellowships are funded by the State Library Victoria Foundation and other program partners, and are awarded annually on the advice of independent expert panels.
