1854 Student Scholarships

1854 Scholarships were established in 2004 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the museum.

The programme celebrates the museum's long history of research across both the Sciences and the Humanities, and builds relationships between Museums Victoria and the university communities.

They are awarded to students undertaking an Honours, Masters or PhD research project related to Museums Victoria's collections, or in association with a museum researcher. Scholarships may be awarded in the fields of Natural Sciences, Australian History & Technology, and Indigenous Cultures.

Successful applicants are provided with funding which enables them to undertake field work or other research-related activities. Without this funding, these activities may not otherwise be possible.
