About the Fellowship
The David Scott Mitchell Fellowship encourages and supports the use of the Mitchell Library's collections for the study and research of Australian history. The David Scott Mitchell Fellowship was established in 2007 through the generous benefaction of Edward John Merewether, great-great-nephew of David Scott Mitchell. The Fellowship celebrates the centenary year of Mitchell’s bequest of his collection to the Library.
Applications for the Merewether Fellowship are now closed and will reopen in 2017.
