Funding: Fellowships at the Henry Moore Institute

Fellowships at the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds

Deadline 9 January 2012.

The Henry Moore Insitute offers a small number of short-term residential fellowships to enable established scholars to spend a period of time in Leeds to work on research projects in any area of sculpture studies,

The fellowships are intended to give individuals the time and space to develop a research project free from their usual work commitments, to introduce them to the Institute and its staff, and to make connections with our research programme.

Fellows are encouraged to use the resources of the Institute, specifically the library and archive, but may also travel further afield where appropriate. Fellows are asked to make a small contribution to the research programme of the Institute, in the form of a talk or seminar. The Institute offers accommodation, travel expenses, and a per diem.

How to Apply

The Henry Moore Institute invites applications for the following fellowship programmes:

Research Fellowships are intended for artists, scholars and curators, working on historic and contemporary sculpture using the Institute’s library, archive of sculptors’ papers and the collection of Leeds Art Gallery. Up to 4 fellows will be given the opportunity to spend a month in Leeds to develop their own research. With access to our resources and an on-going dialogue with the Institute staff, fellows are free to pursue their own interests in a supportive and stimulating environment.

Senior Fellowships are intended to give established scholars (working on any aspect of sculpture) time and space to develop a research project free from their usual work commitments. Up to 2 senior fellowships, for periods of between 4 to 6 weeks will be offered.

Both fellowships provide accommodation, travel expenses and a per diem. The Institute offers the possibility of presenting finished research in published form, as a seminar, or as a small exhibition. The fellowships are an integral part of the research programme, presenting fresh perspectives on the Institute’s collections, opening up new collaborative possibilities and furthering research into sculpture.
