Last chance to apply for a Q ANZAC 100 Fellowship

There are only two weeks left to apply for State Library of Queensland’s inaugural Q ANZAC 100:
Memories for a New Generation
fellowship program.

Four fellowships valued at $15,000 each are on offer to fund research projects relating to Queensland’s
experience of the First World War, both on the home front and the warfront.

State Librarian Janette Wright said the fellowship program is a unique opportunity for researchers to
explore and create new knowledge about our state’s history and commemorate 100 years since the First
World War.

“We are calling for fellowship applications from across Queensland, particularly those that draw attention to
the untold stories of the First World War,” Ms Wright said.

“Following the key criteria — relevance to Queensland and the First World War, new knowledge, use of
collections, project outcomes and project viability — fellowship outcomes may include anything from a
publication, an online engagement activity, a cultural activity or product, a significant acquisition or a
curatorial contribution to the John Oxley Library collection. State Library is a leading collector of Queensland’s documentary heritage and the fellowship program aims to make these resources more visible and accessible to Queenslanders and the rest of the world,” she said.

The John Oxley Library is a key custodian of Queensland’s documentary heritage and presents a wealth of
opportunities for researchers or anyone fascinated by Queensland’s First World War experience to
contribute to our state’s history.

Together with the $15,000 stipend, each fellow is allocated a workspace for up to 12 months, access to the
John Oxley Library collection and support from State Library staff.

Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation is a five year legacy project led by State Library and
proudly supported by the Queensland Government, commemorating the centenary of the First World War
and Anzac across Queensland.

Fellowship applications close at 5pm on Friday 7 November 2014.
