AGL Shaw Summer Research Fellowships

Named for eminent historian the late AGL Shaw AO, these annual Summer Research Fellowships helped honours or postgraduate university students pursue research projects.

Recipients were given access to our collection to undertake in-depth research in their chosen field for four weeks during January or February. We also provided $1200 and space in a private study in the Library, which can be accessed out of hours.
