State Library of Victoria Fellowships

Applications close 23 April 2017

 The State Library’s fellowship 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.

This year, a new Digital Fellowship will be offered for the first time, established to encourage innovative uses of the Library’s digitised collections and data.

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.
