Our Publication Subsidy Scheme supports quality scholarly publication in the humanities. Subsidies of up to $3000 are awarded to early career researchers to support costs associated with publication, such as illustrations, maps, editorial work and copyright fees.

Since 1970 the scheme has supported 303 scholars.

Sir Frederick and Peter White Fund

The Sir Frederick and Peter White Fund is a $500 subsidy to support archaeological publications. Applicants can apply to the Fund for a stand-alone subsidy or in addition to the maximum $3000 available through the Publication Subsidy Scheme. The Fund runs every four years and will be open again in 2022.
