An annually awarded, two-year PMC Early Career Fellowship is to be granted to an early career researcher working in the field of British art history. The fellowship is part of the New Narratives set of funding opportunities designed to increase the diversity of perspectives of researchers and students within this field.

The fellowship is an award of £35,000 per year for two years and is designed to cover the living and sustenance costs of undertaking research in the field of British art history.

As well as funding, the Centre will offer mentorship and guidance for the duration of the fellowship, from both Centre staff and members of the wider British art history community. In turn, the fellows themselves will be expected to provide guidance and mentorship to the recipients of the PMC Doctoral Scholarships and MA/MPhil Studentships being provided under this scheme.

The New Narratives scheme particularly welcomes applications from those who are under-represented within the academic field of the humanities in the UK, including, for example, black and minority ethnic individuals.
