Applications for the 2024 ICOM Australia Fellowship are now open.

Proposals are invited from museum studies students and early career professionals who have completed or are about to complete three years study, for a course of travel and study at an overseas institution(s) examining key questions in museum theory or practice. The Fellowship supports travel through an award of up to AUD $5,000 to cover airfares and associated costs. Applicants should be under the age of 35 and have had at least two and half years’ study in a higher education institution focusing in a related area or have worked for that time in an Australian museum or gallery.

In 2024 proposals focused on travel and study to museums in the Asia Pacific are particularly encouraged.

All proposals must be submitted online or via the post to ICOM Australia by 22 March 2024 and will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • The study or professional record of the applicant; and
  • The relevance of the proposal to key questions in contemporary heritage and museum theory or practice.
