The Museum of Australian Democracy awards fellowships and summer scholarships to researchers interested in the history and contemporary practice of Australian democracy, with special reference to Australian prime ministers.
Fellowships assist established scholars or creative artists with a substantial record of achievement in their field to undertake a research, creative, literary or bibliographic project. Fellowship projects can draw on the Museum’s collection as well as other relevant collections held in Australia or overseas.
Summer Scholarships assist current students to increase their research experience. Summer scholars undertake their research project in Canberra during the summer academic break and have opportunities to engage with summer scholars hosted by other cultural institutions. Summer Scholarships are open to students undertaking studies at Honours or postgraduate level. Summer Scholars may nominate their own research project, or work on a project set by the museum.
Applications for the 2013-14 Fellowships will close at 5pm (AEST) on 1 July 2013.
