‘National Library Scholarships and Grants provide emerging researchers with an opportunity to deepen their research by working with original documents and unique collections. But they also provide an opportunity to be part of the Library's research community, engaging with and learning from other researchers in residence, as well as experienced reference librarians,’ said Kathryn Favelle, Director, Reader Services.

Successful applicants will have special access to the Library’s collection material, supported by expert staff, full office facilities including a designated workstation, and an honorarium to support their residency in Canberra.
