Children's Literature Fellowship

The State Library offers a specialist fellowship to support applicants wanting to utilise the Library's children's book collection on a project exploring aspects of children's book publishing, writing or illustrating – early years, children and young adult fiction (0–18 years of age).

The Library's collection has over 100,000 items, including novels, illustrated fiction, picture books, graphic novels, poetry and traditional stories.

The fellowship carries a grant of $15,000 and is for a period of three months full time, or longer if undertaken in a part-time capacity.

2020 program

We are pausing our Fellowships program in 2020 to look at how we can create more value for participants and the Victorian community, and greater alignment to the Library’s strategy.

We look forward to announcing details of a redesigned Fellowships program that will return in 2021.
