Placenames Australia is again seeking applications for a $1,000 grant for a place-name project in your local area, which is expected to involve searching documents and archives of primary and secondary sources. This will not involve the retelling of prior published research. The grant is not necessarily intended to defray the costs of the project, but may be used to support the general work of the society.
The deadline for applications is 1 July 2013. For more information, or to download the proposal form, go to the website of Australian National Placenames Survey.
