The Yale Center for British Art offers three types of short-term residential awards to scholars undertaking research related to British art. While in residence, scholars will have access to the Center’s rich holdings of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, rare books, and manuscripts, as well as primary and secondary reference materials. Scholars will have a dedicated working space, the opportunity to participate in the Center’s events and programs and will be encouraged to engage with the scholarly community of both the Center and the University.
The Center's building conservation project will affect access to the building and collections throughout 2015. The next cycle of Visiting Scholar Awards will be between July 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014, as we regrettably are unable to accommodate visiting scholars in 2015. Applicants should take these restricted dates into account when stating their preferred month(s) of tenure. See project details.
Visiting Scholar Awards
These awards enable scholars and doctoral students working in any discipline, including history, the history of art, literature, and other fields related to British visual and material culture, to study the Center’s collections.
Curatorial Scholar Awards
These awards enable curators based in municipal and regional museums in the UK, beyond London, whose curatorial remit or activities encompass British art, to make use of the resources and collections of the Center to advance research on their own collections or curatorial projects.
AHRC IPS Scholar Awards
These awards are open to doctoral students and early career researchers funded by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council.
