The Ernst & Rosemarie Keller Fund supports the research activities of scholars residing in Australia whose research is concerned with German history, literature, language, politics or culture, or German contributions to the history, literature, languages, politics or culture of either Australia or the Asia-Pacific region.

Dr Ernst Keller FAHA was a scholar of German and Comparative Literature. In 2007, Ernst’s wife Rosemarie Keller gave the Academy a generous bequest to commemorate his distinguished academic career. Formerly offered as part of our Humanities Travelling Fellowships, an updated Ernst & Rosemarie Keller Fund was established in 2014 and offers a maximum of $5000 for travelling fellowships, convening workshops and/or masterclasses.

This award has contributed to my career development in offering an opportunity for sustained research on my major research project. The Award itself is held in high-esteem and awards such as this contribute to my international impact factor and reputation.
