SLV announces new $15,000 fellowship for Indigenous cultural research

The State Library Victoria (SLV) will offer a new $15,000 specialist fellowship for Victorian Aboriginal researchers in 2018.

The Indigenous Victorian Aboriginal Cultural Research Fellowship is offered to a researcher who identifies as an Indigenous Victorian Aboriginal person, and is intended to make knowledge about Victorian Aboriginal society and the library’s collections more accessible to the Indigenous community.

The fellowship is offered for three months, and the recipient will have access to a shared office space, as well as special access to the library’s collections and experts.

The new fellowship is part of the SLV’s annual fellowships program, which is collectively worth up to $215,000 across a range of areas.

Applications for the fellowship program are currently open and will close on 22 April. For more information about the fellowship, see the SLV website.
