The National Library of Australia offers annual summer scholarships to

generosity of the family of the late Norman McCann (a former National
Library Council Member), and of John and Heather Seymour.
The summer scholarships were established to support younger scholars
undertaking any research which can be supported by the Library's
collections. Preference for Norman McCann Scholarships will be given to
those working in the disciplines of history, literature, librarianship,
archives administration or museum studies. Preference for Seymour
Scholarships will be for those undertaking biographical research.
The scholarships are tenable for a period of six weeks commencing on the
first working day of January each year.

*What assistance is offered?*
Scholarship holders will receive an honorarium of $300 per week and
accommodation and meals in a Canberra university college for the six-week
