Due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 crisis on individuals and institutions in the field of British art studies, this special programme of grants and fellowships, first launched by the PMC in May 2020, will be offered again in 2021. The awards will provide quickly-released funding and are intended to sustain research, writing and thinking on British art and architecture during a period of unprecedented disruption for our scholarly and curatorial communities.

Research Continuity Fellowships are awards of £5,000, designed to support individuals in conducting their writing and research on British art and architecture during the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of these fellowships is to enable individuals to sustain themselves and their work in the face of the financial and scholarly challenges generated by the crisis.
