Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme – Deadline January 20th, 2019
The Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme is open to the new generation of museum professionals, inquisitive, object-based specialists who will further develop 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 to encourage the exchange of knowledge – both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.
The deadline for applications is 20 January 2019, and all Fellowships will start on 1 September 2019.
