Powerhouse Museum Movable Heritage Fellowship

Movable heritage is a term used to define any natural or manufactured object of heritage significance. A tertiary student enrolled in a course relevant to the research and documentation of an aspect of the movable heritage of NSW, is annually awarded the Fellowship to undertake a research project on an object or group of objects in a NSW community museum, historical society or other collecting institution. The student will receive $5,000 and spend a minimum of one week at the Powerhouse Museum working with a supervisor. Applications for the 2012 Movable Heritage Fellowship close 3 February 2012.
