About the Fellowship
The Fellowship encourages deep and focused research into Australian culture, history and society, drawing on Australian and international research collections. It also will promote discussion on Australian history and culture through research which informs and engages contemporary discourse.
The Coral Thomas Fellowship, inaugurated in 2015 in honour of Coral Kirkwood Thomas née Patrick (1920-1996), is the most significant Fellowship offered by the State Library of New South Wales. The Library gratefully acknowledges Rob & Kyrenia Thomas and family, whose generosity has established it.
