Fellowships offer a unique opportunity for researchers and creatives of all kinds to immerse themselves in State Library of Queensland’s vast collections, gain access to expert staff and bring to life new stories to advance the understanding of Queensland’s cultural heritage.

The inaugural Rainbow Research Fellowship supports research, exploration, and creation of new knowledge about Queensland’s LGBTIQA+ histories and communities using the John Oxley Library and State Library collections and resources. The fellowship, first of its kind in Queensland and potentially Australia, supports a more inclusive telling of Queensland history.

The Fellowship recipient receives a stipend of $15,000, a personal workspace within the Neil Roberts Research Lounge for 12 months and premium access to State Library’s extensive collections and library staff expertise.
