Ukrainian Studies Foundation in Australia Fellowship
The Library offered a specialist fellowship to support applicants wanting to utilise the Library's collections on a project exploring Ukrainian history and/or culture in Australia and in particular in Victoria.
The Library's collection includes holdings documenting migration and settlement, literature, history, politics and popular culture.
The fellowship carried a grant of $15,000 and was for a period of three months full time, or longer if undertaken in a part-time capacity.
Note: the Ukrainian Studies Foundation in Australia Fellowship was last offered at State Library Victoria in 2018.
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.
