The National Library offers annual Japan Study Grants supported by the Harold S. Williams Trust Fund. The Grants were established to support interstate scholars and researchers whose work would benefit from access to the Japan-related collections of the National Library.
Funding & Duration
Grant holders will receive an honorarium of $1,000 per week to cover accommodation and living costs in Canberra, together with a return economy class air fare or equivalent for travel between the grant holder’s home within Australia to Canberra.
They will be provided with a desk in the Asian Collections Reading Room, access to the book stacks and free photocopying. International travel will not be funded.
Grants are offered for periods of up to four weeks commencing in January each year.
Japan Study Grants are open to postgraduate students, academic researchers, teaching staff and independent scholars in any discipline, based outside the Australian Capital Territory or Queanbeyan who can demonstrate a need to use the Library’s Japanese or Japan-related collections for their research.
Priority consideration will be given to applicants from centres where there are few or no library resources in the Japanese language. Japan Study Grants are open to adults of any age and citizenship but applicants must be a resident in Australia.
