The National Library, Singapore has launched a new fellowship programme: the George Lyndon Hicks Fellowship for Southeast Asia Collections (GLHF).

The GLHF aims to attract top tier professionals to work with the National Library, Singapore (NLS) to develop its collections on Singapore and Southeast Asia. Through the Fellowship, NLS also aims to foster partnerships with collectors worldwide.

We welcome talented librarians, researchers, curators, archivists and collectors to collaborate with us to enrich the library’s Asia-centric collections and resources.
