The Bill Cowan Barr Smith Library Fellowship

Applications are invited for the Bill Cowan Barr Smith Library Fellowship which has been established by the Cowan Grant to provide financial assistance towards study for postgraduate degrees by research using the collections of the Barr Smith Library. The Cowan Grant was founded in 1994 on the estate of Marnie and Bill Cowan to provide financial assistance for students and offers a range of scholarships.
