ANN: Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme

Applications now open for The Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme
Deadline: 17 January 2021

The Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme is open to the new generation of museum professionals, inquisitive, object-based specialists who will further develop an understanding of Netherlandish art, history and museology for the future.

We welcome international, independent research proposals which open new perspectives on the Rijksmuseum’s collection, its history and activities. The purpose of the Fellowship Programme is to encourage and support scholarly investigation, and to contribute to academic discourse while strengthening bonds between the museum and universities. 

The programme enables highly talented candidates to base part of their research at the Rijksmuseum, and offers access to the museum’s expertise, collections, library and laboratories. Furthermore, the programme facilitates opportunities for Fellows to engage in workshops and excursions (when possible) to encourage the exchange of knowledge – both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.

The deadline for applications is 17 January 2021, and all Fellowships will start on 1 September 2021.

Apply now.
