The University Library is very pleased to invite applications for the 2021 Hugh Martin Weir Prize.

The Prize honours the memory of Lieutenant Hugh Martin Weir (1915 – 2004) and his fellow prisoners of war. It is designed to encourage study and research, including the use of the Barr Smith Library collections, into any aspect of Australia’s involvement in any war, or the treatment of prisoners of war in any conflict, including the impact on those persons involved, their families, or their communities.

The Prize is open to University of Adelaide students who are enrolled in an Honours thesis program, or a postgraduate program by coursework or research, either commencing or already in progress. Postdoctoral researchers are eligible to apply within three years of a doctoral award.

The maximum value of the Prize is $2,000, which can be put towards the costs of travel and accommodation, books, printing, Interlibrary Loans, and publication or other agreed upon purposes.

Applications close on 27 February 2021.
