The Redmond Barry Fellowship is a partnership between the University of Melbourne and the State Library of Victoria. The Fellowship facilitates scholarly research and the production of works of literature utilising the superb collections of the two institutions. Up to $20,000 shall be awarded to assist with travel, living and research expenses. Fellows will be based at the State Library of Victoria for three to six months. During this period, Fellows will be expected to pursue their own project, present a lecture or short seminar series open to the public, Library and University communities, and submit a brief report at the conclusion of their Fellowship. Fellowships are open to scholars and writers from Australia and overseas. The Fellow’s project may be in any discipline or area in which the Library and the University have strong collections.
