Collaborative Doctoral Program PhD Scholarships

Up to three joint prestigious PhD scholarships will be offered by flagship national institutions in partnership with the Centre for Heritage and Museum Studies (CHMS) in the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences.

A Collaborative Doctoral Scholarship will allow the scholarship holder to benefit from the diverse scholarly and professional opportunities afforded by being co-located in a world-class research university and a major national institution. The partner institutions are: the National Archives of Australia (the Ian Maclean Scholarship), the National Museum of Australian and the Australian Parliamentary Library (Department of Parliamentary Services).

The successful applicants will enroll in the Interdisciplinary and Cross-Cultural Research graduate program at ANU and be embedded in the relevant Institution for part of their candidature.

The PhD can be completed by a combination of a range of formats including an exhibition or equivalent non-traditional output. Thesis by publication or scholarly edition are also possible.

Applicants are invited to develop a proposal from a broad list of areas identified by each partner Institution. Further details are available on the following links:

Note: to be considered applicants must also apply for entry into the ANU PhD program.

New deadline for applications: 8 March 2020.
