2019 State Library of NSW fellowships announced

Tuesday 16 October 2018

Six prestigious research fellowships totalling over $100,000 have just been awarded by the State Library of NSW.

According to Richard Neville, Mitchell Librarian & Director of Education & Scholarship at the State Library of NSW: “The State Library is committed to supporting original research that questions or provides new perspectives on Australia’s documented history.”

“The Fellowships offered for 2019 cover an exciting range of topics stretching from early colonial days right through to the present, and which not only document life in NSW, but also the region in which we live and our links to the global community,” says Mr Neville.

“This year we are pleased to announce the inaugural Dr AM Hertzberg Fellowship project which examines the impact of globalisation on Australian industry.”

The Library’s extensive Fellowships program, which includes the biennial Coral Thomas Fellowship (valued at $75,000), is supported by the State Library Foundation and generous private benefactors.
