The Paul Mellon Centre's sister institution, the Yale Center for British Art, offer three types of short-term residential awards to scholars undertaking research related to British art. While in residence, scholars have access to the Center's rich holdings of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, rare books and manuscripts. They are given a dedicated working space in the Center's Reference Library and encouraged to participate in events and programs, as well as to engage with the scholarly community of the university.

Visiting Scholar Awards
These awards provide academic, museum, and independent scholars, as well as doctoral students working in any fiend related to British visual and material culture an opportunity to study in the Center's collection.

Curatorial Scholar Awards
These awards are intended for curators who are based in museums in the UK and engaged in significant curatorial work in any field of British art. Applications from curators at municipal and regional museums are especially encouraged.

AHRC International Placement Scheme (IPS) Scholar Awards
These awards are open to early career researchers, research assistants, and doctoral students. Proposed research must be in a discipline, which may include history, history of art, literatures, or other field, that relates to British art.
