The Smithsonian Institution
Queensland has a longstanding and very productive research relationship with the Smithsonian Institution—the world’s largest museum and research complex.

Established in 2000 our Memorandum of Understanding has resulted in numerous successful collaborations and two prestigious fellowships. Valued at $25,000 and $20,000 respectively, the Queensland-Smithsonian and Queensland-Cooper-Hewitt fellowship programs are helping advance global knowledge in:
- eco and life sciences
- social sciences and education
- museum management
- the arts and design
Since 2001, nearly 50 Queensland research fellows have been funded. View current projects being conducted by research fellows.
