Merlyn Myer Biography Stipend

In honour of the life of Merlyn Myer (1900-1982), philanthropist and wife of Sidney Myer, the Merlyn Myer Biography Stipend has been established to assist Australian non-fiction literary writing through the art of biography.  In 2013, two stipends valued at $50,000 each were awarded to Australian authors undertaking a major biography under commission from an Australian publisher.

Details of the 2013 recipients can be found in the news section of this website.

This is a biennial program and will not be offered again until 2015.  Please revisit this website in January 2015 to review the guidelines and learn how to make an application.
