The Yale Center for British Art offers four types of short-term residential awards to scholars undertaking research related to British art. While in residence, scholars have access to the museum’s rich holdings of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, rare books, and manuscripts, as well as primary and secondary reference materials.
Scholars are given a dedicated working space in the Center’s Reference Library and encouraged to participate in events and programs, as well as to engage with the scholarly community of the university. They are also able to take advantage of the extensive collections at other Yale museums and libraries.
