Visiting Scholar Awards
Visiting Scholar Awards provide academic, museum, and independent scholars, as well as doctoral students, working in any field related to British art an opportunity to study the Center’s collection.
Awards are offered to scholars and predoctoral students working in any discipline, including history, history of art, literature, and other fields related to British art. Predoctoral applicants from North America must be ABD to qualify.
One award per annum is reserved for a member of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Scholars may apply to the Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, for awards in the same year; every effort will be made to offer consecutive dates.
Residency dates for successful applicants in the 2020–21 cycle may be held between July 1, 2020, and June 30, 2021. While all applications are given equal consideration, stays lasting a minimum of two months are encouraged. Predoctoral awards may be held from one to two months. Postdoctoral awards may be held between one to four consecutive months.
Travel and Accommodation
Awards cover the cost of travel to and from New Haven, and provide accommodation as well as a living allowance. Recipients are required to be in residence in New Haven for the duration of their award and must be free of all other significant professional responsibilities during their stay.
The deadline for the 2020–21 application cycle has been extended to Monday, January 13, 2020. Applicants should complete the online application and upload a cover letter (no more than one page), a CV, and an outline of the project (no more than three pages) that includes an indication of the resources to be consulted at the Center and preferred months of tenure. Applicants should also provide a title for their research project and place their full name on each page of the application. Two confidential letters of recommendation should be e-mailed directly to email@example.com by the same deadline.
