About the Fellowship

The Milt Luger Fellowships were awarded for projects which would investigate and document aspects of Australian history, life and culture through research based largely on the collections and records held within the State Library of New South Wales. Preference was given to research projects which had not received any prior support and which would highlight the role of innovation and leadership in Australian life.

This Fellowship is currently not being offered by the State Library of New South Wales.
