Paul Mellon Centre Research Support (Travel) Grant on British Art and Architecture

The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art offers a variety of Fellowships (for individuals) and Grants (for institutions and individuals) twice a year in a strictly timetabled schedule. The programme supports scholarship, academic research and the dissemination of knowledge in the field of British art and architectural history from the medieval period to the present, although all supported topics must have an historical perspective. 

We do not offer fellowships and grants in the fields of archaeology, the current practice of architecture or the performing arts. We have no discretionary funds outside our stated programme.

Scope

Research Support Grants are offered in Spring and Autumn each year to assist with research travel costs. They are offered to scholars already engaged in research involving the study of British art or architectural history. Grants may be used towards the expenses incurred in visiting collections, libraries, archives or historic sites with the United Kingdom or abroad for research purposes.

These grants are offered for specific research visits and individuals may claim for the following costs in line with the limits given below:

  • Fares (in full)
  • Accommodation (up to a maximum of £100 per night)
  • Daily subsistence (£40 per day)

Conference attendance, costs of photography, photocopying, computers, cameras or other equipment DO NOT come within the scope of this award and such costs must not be included in any application. 

Payment of the grant must be claimed within 12 months of it being awarded and the research trip must be taken within 18 months of the grant being awarded.

Funding

The maximum award given in this category is £2,000. 

Eligibility

Academics, scholars, postgraduate students and independent researchers are eligible to apply in the Research Support Grant category, with the stipulation that their research is in the field of British art or architectural history and is of a scholarly nature.
