The Ursula Hoff Internship now open

Dr Ursula Hoff bequeathed funds to the University of Melbourne to establish a Fellowship for the study and promotion of prints held in the print collections of the University of Melbourne and the National Gallery of Victoria. In recognition of Dr Hoff’s scholarly and professional achievements, the Fellowship is awarded annually to a candidate displaying a commitment to research into prints, the history of print collecting and the scholarly activities of museums and universities.

The Fellowship is open to an early career researcher who has completed a Master of Arts (MA), Master of Fine Arts (MFA) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Art, Art History, Arts Management or Art Curatorship at a recognised Australian university. Applicants must nominate a project dedicated to research into prints and the history of print collecting in Australia, based on the print collections of the University of Melbourne and the National Gallery of Victoria. The value of the Ursula Hoff Internship is $30,000. Visit the Fellowship's website for further details and application form.

For information on the University’s print collections visit the websites of the Baillieu Library Print Collection and the Ian Potter Museum of Art.
