The University Library is very pleased to invite applications for the 2018 Hugh Martin Weir Prize.
The Prize honours the memory of Lieutenant Hugh Martin Weir (1915 – 2004) and his fellow prisoners of war. It is designed to encourage study and research, including the use of the Barr Smith Library collections, into any aspect of Australia’s involvement in any war, or the treatment of prisoners of war in any conflict, including the impact on those persons involved, their families, and/or their communities.
The Prize is open to University of Adelaide students who are enrolled in an Honours thesis program or a postgraduate program by coursework or by research, either commencing or already in progress. Postdoctoral researchers are eligible to apply within three years of a doctoral award.
The maximum value of the Prize will be $2,000, which can be put towards the costs of travel and accommodation, books, printing, inter-library loans, copying and publication or other agreed purposes.
Applications open on 11 October 2017 and close on 27 February 2018. More information and an application form are available on the website.
