Leo Fleischmann Visiting Fellowship in Pacific Islands Arts and Material Culture

Australian Museum

The Leo Fleischmann Fellowship offers researchers the opportunity to conduct research on the art and material culture of the Pacific region. This fellowship, generally awarded every 2 years, was established in 1995 by the late Ms Senta Taft-Hendry in memory of Leo Fleischmann of Galleries Primitif, Woollahra. It is designed to increase knowledge about the arts and material culture of the Pacific Islands through original research on the extensive collections in the Australian Museum from Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia.
Eligibility: Applicants must have at least an Honours degree or appropriate research or experience qualifications. Preference will be given to Australian citizens or Australian permanent residents. Selection is based on: significance of the intellectual contribution to the collection of interest; enhancement to the Australian Museum ethnographic collections; clear and appropriate budget; proven track record in the field of study. The fellowship is not intended to support research contributing to a higher degree. Potential applicants must document that the Pacific Collection Manager at the Australian Museum has acknowledged that project is feasible and can be accommodated.
