The Book Depository

The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) established the Stanner Award in 1985 in recognition of the significant contribution of the late Emer. Professor W.E.H. (Bill) Stanner to the establishment and development of the Institute.

The Stanner Award comprises a certificate and a prize of $1,000 to the author of the successful publication.

One award may be given each year for the best published contribution to Australian Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Studies that is considered by Council to be a significant work of scholarship in Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Studies and which reflects the dynamic nature of Professor Stanner’s life and work.
