HISTORY COUNCIL OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP

 

 

A key objective of the History Council of South Australia (HCSA) is to promote research, writing and publication specifically in the area of South Australian history. To this end the HCSA is planning to establish an annual Fellowship.

 

The Fellowship will be funded from the annual interest earnings accrued from a dedicated Fellowship Fund established within the framework of the Australian Cultural Fund. The Fellowship will be awarded annually to an emerging or established historian. Advertised by the HCSA, it will be open to historians resident in Australia or abroad.

 

The selection of the annual Fellowship holder will be by a competitive process. A requirement of gaining a Fellowship will be for the holder to give a presentation on the research project and its findings at a time and in a format agreed with the HCSA. The HCSA, in addition to funding the Fellowship, will also assist in putting appropriate arrangements in place with the institution(s) where the research activity is to be carried out.

 

The HCSA is seeking donations for this project. The target for the Fellowship Fund is $AUS40000. Any donation no matter how small is welcome and can be submitted via this link.
