CSURA Research Scholarships

To promote student use of the CSU Regional Archives collection, the Archives offers a number of scholarships for students to work on designated projects at the Archives each year. The scholarships are open to suitably qualified CSU students on a competitive basis. In 2017, two scholarships are on offer.

CSURA - School of Information Studies Scholarship

The CSU School of Information Studies and CSU Regional Archives are offering a scholarship to a student enrolled in a course within the School of Information Studies. The scholarship is an excellent opportunity for a student proposing to make a career as an information professional to gain practical work experience in their chosen field.

CSURA - Wagga Wagga and District Historical Society Scholarship

The Wagga Wagga and District Historical Society, in partnership with CSU Regional Archives, is offering a scholarship to a Charles Sturt University student to work on a research project at the Archives which will make a contribution to the study of local history.

The application period for the 2017 Scholarships are open until 20 April 2017.
