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.

Our Advisory Council meets to decide on the awards in March (for the Spring round) and in October (for the Autumn round). Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application within three weeks of the Advisory Council meeting.

Please note that applications for funding must be made exclusively online. Hard-copy submissions will not be considered.
