The National Library Board offers various fellowship opportunities to researchers interested in contributing to the library’s Singapore and Southeast Asian resources.

The George Lyndon Hicks Fellowship for Southeast Asia Collections grants talented librarians, researchers, curators, archivists and collectors the opportunity to develop the library’s collections on Singapore and Southeast Asia. Topics include the history of Straits Settlements, early education, early trade and local community histories.

Besides advising on the National Library’s collection development efforts for its Special Collections, recipients of the fellowship will be expected to deliver a public lecture at the end of the fellowship term.

There is also the Lee Kong Chian Research Fellowship for scholars and researchers who wish to conduct new research and publications on Singapore and Southeast Asian culture, economy and heritage.

Recipients of the fellowship will have to write a Singapore Infopedia article, complete a 3,000-word and a 6,000-word paper based on their research findings, as well as deliver a public lecture.
