Applications for research fellowships are open!
Do you have interesting tale from Queensland’s history to tell? Or perhaps some fresh thinking for the GLAM sector you’d like to explore?
Applications are now open for State Library’s research fellowships as part of the Queensland Memory Awards. With $80,000 in bursaries available, now could be the time to focus on that idea that’s been bubbling away.
What is a research fellowship? Through our fellowships, storytellers, researchers and creatives of all kinds bring the collection alive with their insights and interpretations. They dive deep into the collections of the John Oxley Library to join the dots that uncover untold stories, tell little-known histories and expand our existing knowledge about any number of subjects. The Mittelheuser Scholar in Residence also supports a GLAM worker to develop new skills, tools or resources for the sector.
There are 6 fellowships on offer:
- John Oxley Library Fellowship ($20,000) - uncover Queensland's limitless history.
- Monica Clare Research Fellowship ($15,000) - help share Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander culture.
- Mittelheuser Scholar in Residence ($15,000) - create new tools and thinking for galleries libraries, archives and museums.
- Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame Fellowship ($15,000) - investigate Queensland’s diverse business and economic history.
- Inaugural Christina Boughen OAM Fellowship ($10,000) - research the legacy of this influential musician.
