Junior Fellowships are offered annually for the purpose of pursuing further British art or architectural history doctoral research in the United Kingdom based at the Paul Mellon Centre in London, England.
They are designed for applicants who are advanced in their doctoral research and need to have an extended period of archival or library research in the United Kingdom. Funding supports scholarship, academic research and the dissemination of knowledge in the fields of British art and architectural history, and of British visual culture understood more broadly, from the medieval period to the present day. All supported topics must have a clear art-historical perspective, including those that focus on recent or contemporary artistic practice. All applications must demonstrate that British art, architecture or visual culture provides a substantial focus for their project.
The Fellowship is an award of £8,000 to cover a period of three months.
Candidates may be of any nationality, but must be enrolled in a graduate programme at a United States or other non-British university.
