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 Grants are awards of £10,000, designed to enable institutions to continue planning and conducting curatorial and scholarly research projects during the coming year, on topics drawn from the history of British art and architecture.
