This year, as the Indigenous people of Victoria face the Treaty process, two dedicated Indigenous Fellowships are offered: the Indigenous Victorian Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Research Fellowship and the Indigenous Victorian Aboriginal Family History Fellowship. These are specialist fellowships open to researchers who identify as Indigenous Victorian Aboriginal.

The fellowship aims to encourage and increase Aboriginal Victorians’ access to the traditional cultural knowledge held in the Library’s collections, by supporting fellows to produce research that can be used and shared in the community.

Join us for this information session  to learn more about the Indigenous Victorian Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Research Fellowship and the Indigenous Victorian Aboriginal Family History Fellowship.
