The Viva Cribb Bursary Program provides funding to individuals or non-profit groups to assist with the costs related to a project that documents or records a significant aspect of the local history of Ipswich.
The bursary is named in honour of Viva Cribb, who demonstrated a dedication to the preservation of the history of Ipswich.
The bursary fosters an appreciation of the city's local history and heritage, encouraging individuals to document issues of historical significance to Ipswich, and making it accessible to the community.
Eligible projects must have a substantive connection to an identified area of Ipswich history and can be in the form of a printed book, web resource (e-book or mobile app), edited oral histories, short film or digital stories, or other suitable format.
