Japan Study Grant

Japan Study Grants are open to postgraduates, honours students, academic staff or independent researchers in Australia who wish to use the Japan-related collections of the National Library for their research.

The grants are offered for periods of up to four weeks and support travel to Canberra and living costs. Grants are not available to those living in the Australian Capital Territory or Queanbeyan.

Applications for 2013/2014 open on 1 July 2013 and close on 30 September 2013. No late applications will be considered. Application results will be notified by mid November 2013. Successful applicants can take up grants during late November 2013 to September 2014.

Selection criteria

The principle selection criteria are:

  • Academic record of the applicant as shown in application
  • Referee reports.

Priority consideration will be given to candidates:

  • who are based in centres where there are few or no library resources in the Japanese language
  • who can demonstrate a need to use the Library's Japanese or Japan-related collections for their research
  • whose proposed study is best able to be supported by the National Library's Japanese and Japan-related collections.
