Applications open for Nancy Bamford Summer Scholarships and Research Grants

Applications are invited from students enrolled in MA theses and PhD dissertations for grants and summer scholarships to support research conducted at the Auckland War Memorial Museum Library.

Several grants up to the value of $5,000 each may be awarded, as well as up to two summer scholarships of $6,000 each.

The research will make extensive use of the documentary heritage resources of the Museum Library: manuscripts and archives, photographs, ephemera, maps, and publications including early newspapers. The Museum Library’s resources support a wide range of study, but this year the Museum’s priorities are likely to be of greatest application to those studying in:

  • Faculty of Arts
  • Creative Arts and Industries
  • Business School
    • Business History
    • Marketing and Communications
  • Faculty of Science
    • Biological Sciences
    • Environmental Sciences
    • Geography
    • History of Science

Applications close on Tuesday 31 October 2017 and awardees will be notified by Friday 10 November 2017.
