National Library of Australia Summer Scholarships
The National Library of Australia Summer Scholarships program supports PhD students who require access to the Library’s collections to assist their postgraduate research.
These scholarships are made possible through the generosity of the family of the late Norman McCann (a former National Library Council Member), John and Heather Seymour, Carol Moya Mills (former Charles Sturt University Librarian), Emeritus Professor Janice Reid AC (a former National Library Council Member) and a generous Library Patron.
Up to six scholarships are available:
- Two Norman McCann Scholarships for research into Australian history, Australian literature, librarianship, archives administration, or museum studies
- The Seymour Scholarship for biographical research
- The Carol Moya Mills Scholarship, for research on any subject, for a scholar from regional or rural Australia
- The Nangaypa Rirraliny Scholarship, for research on any subject, for Indigenous scholars
- The National Library of Australia Scholarship, for research on any subject, with preference given to Indigenous scholars
Scholars spend six weeks at the Library, from 10 January to 18 February 2022, and receive:
- $6000 for use as a stipend, travel and accommodation support
- special and supported access to collections
- access to the Fellows room, with full office facilities and a personal workstation
