The Library offers a specialist fellowship to support applicants wanting to utilise the Library's collections on a project exploring Ukrainian history and/or culture.

The Library's collection includes holdings documenting migration and settlement, literature, history, politics and popular culture.

The fellowship carries a grant of $22,000 and is for a period of five months full time, or longer if undertaken in a part-time capacity.

Please note: this fellowship project must explore the contribution of the Ukrainian community within Australia. Please include how you intend to do this in your response to Question 9 in the application form.
