Call for Applications – Australian Policy and History / Copyright Agency Limited Internships

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE 27 JULY, 2012

Australian Policy and History (APH) would like to call for applications for ‘Australian Policy and History / Copyright Agency Limited Internships’. Ten of these internships are available for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and early career researchers, to develop a research project into a scholarly paper to be submitted to Australian Policy and History, by December, 2012, which will be peer-reviewed and considered for publication.

Following the closing date, members of the Australian Policy & History Network will review applications and nominate ten successful applicants. APH staff will mentor each successful applicant during a three-to-four month internship period as each ‘intern’ develops a research project that links historical inquiry and practice with current affairs. The final paper resulting from this project will be peer-reviewed and considered for publication in APH. Note that APH papers are between 2000-4000 words and are constructed of short, succinct paragraphs; an executive summary (or abstract) is provided at the beginning of the article explaining the major points; footnotes are not included, but a short reading list is provided at the end (for an example of the style and genre of APH papers please visit www.aph.org.au). Thanks to assistance from the Copyright Agency Limited Cultural Fund, each intern will receive $2000 to support research and writing activities during their internship. This may be used on related costs such as travel costs (eg: to meet with the APH mentors in person or to visit Australian archives), funding to cover conference or workshop registration fees, or any other research-associated expenditure.

How To Apply:

Applicants should submit a completed application form available for download at the bottom of this page, plus an outline of the applicant’s proposed paper, a timeline of activities they will undertake to complete the paper within the period of the internship, a budget proposing how the $2000 internship funds will support their research and writing activities, and an example of their written work (eg: a scholarly essay or a published article). Ten internships are available, and applicants may propose any topic of interest that links historical inquiry and practice with current affairs.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE 27 JULY, 2012
