The History Council of NSW is proud to announce a new opportunity for history professionals and students in regional New South Wales – the Jill Roe Bursary.
Thanks to a generous bequest from the late highly respected historian and History Council Life Member, Jill Roe, AO, we will be offering two $500 bursaries a year to individuals working and/or studying in regional NSW in the field of history for professional development purposes.
The bursary must be used for:
- Travel/accommodation costs for a professional development event(s)
- Registration or ticket fees for a professional development event(s) – conferences, seminars, workshops.
The bursary cannot be used for:
- Retrospective events/activities that have already started
- The cost of meals
- Tertiary course enrolment fees
To be eligible to apply, you must be:
- an Australian citizen or permanent resident
- an emerging or established professional working or studying in the area of history
- an individual living and/or working/studying in regional New South Wales
How to apply:
- Applicants must first address the eligibility criteria, providing evidence.
- Applicants must provide a rationale (maximum 500 words) detailing how the bursary would benefit them and what they will use it for and definite or estimated dates.
- Applications are accepted at any time (until all allocated annual funds for the program are expended each calendar year).
- Applications must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and received by the History Council of NSW at least four weeks before the date of the professional development event/activity to allow staff time to assess the application.
In exchange for our support through the Jill Roe Bursary program, recipients will be expected to sign a document agreeing to the Terms & Conditions of the bursary and provide us with a short written report (maximum 500 words) within 4 weeks after the completion of their event/activity and be willing to share their experiences through our blog and social media channels.
Questions about this bursary should be directed to email@example.com in the first instance.
