Mid-Career Fellowships are awarded annually to academics and scholars at universities, museums, galleries or other institutions who are established in their careers and who were awarded their doctorates over six years previously. Applications are also welcome from independent and freelance scholars, and from individuals who do not hold a doctorate, but all applicants must have a scholarly profile.
They are designed to release Fellows from teaching and/or other employment responsibilities and provide them with a defined period of four months to devote to research for an article, book, exhibition or catalogue.
The Fellowship is an award of £15,000 to cover a period of four months.
Four-month full-time Mid-Career Fellowships are specifically designed for:
- a period of sustained research for a clearly defined major project which will lead to a publication (printed or online), article, a catalogue or an exhibition
