Indigenous History Fellowship

The $20,000 biennial NSW Indigenous History Fellowship is offered by the Government to assist a person living in New South Wales to research and produce a work on a subject of historical interest relating to New South Wales from an Indigenous point of view.

Applicants may be independent historians, or historians working in conjunction with Indigenous communities. In both instances, applicants should provide evidence of support and agreement from relevant peak bodies or representative community groups.

Applicants are required to demonstrate that their project will:

  • Add to, or bring fresh perspectives to bear upon, their nominated subject
  • Benefit their experience and development as an historian, and/or advance scholarly historical writing from an Indigenous perspective in New South Wales.

How to apply

This Fellowship is offered biennially and will next be offered in 2012.

The guidelines and application form will be available on this website from March 2012.
