The National Library of Australia offers four Summer Scholarships for PhD students in Australian history and culture, literature and biography. The six week scholarships provide intensive access to the Library’s collections in a supportive research environment and includes accommodation at University House, domestic travel to Canberra and a weekly honorarium of $300.

Information on projects undertaken by previous scholars – including last year’s study of Australian women composers by Talisha Goh – can be found on the National Library of Australia’s website.
Applicants must be aged under 31 at December 2016 (a condition imposed by the donors).
