Residential Scholar Awards

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 the Center and the university.
