It also carries listings of art history conferences and publication opportunities of particular interest to graduate students.

Australia Research Council (ARC)

The ARC is the primary source of advice to the Government on investment in the national research effort. The ARC supports the highest quality research and research training through national competition in all fields of science, social sciences and the humanities, and brokers partnerships between researchers and industry, government, community organisations and the international community.

Australian-American Fulbright Commission

The Australian Fulbright program was established through a Binational Treaty in 1949. Since then almost 2,500 Australians have been awarded prestigious Fulbright scholarships to study, research and travel. Each year, up to 20 awards are made to Australian Postgraduates, Postdoctoral Fellows, Professionals and Senior Scholars. Fields of study range from the traditional fields of law and science to the visual and performing arts.
