Grants & Fellowships

Guidance & FAQs

The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (PMC) is an educational charity that champions new ways of understanding British art history and culture. The Centre offers a variety of grants (for institutions and individuals) and fellowships (for individuals) twice a year in a strictly timetabled schedule. Exceptionally, PMC also occasionally supports larger research projects developed through partnerships with other organisations. If you would like to discuss an idea for a new partnership, please contact the Head of Grants, Fellowships and Networks.

Through all areas of our work, including our Grants & Fellowships programme, we promote activities that enhance and expand knowledge of British art and architecture. As an institution, we pledge ourselves to ensuring that the histories of British art are enriched and made more relevant to a broader range of people in the future. The inclusion of voices, narratives and experiences that have been marginalised or excluded in the past will have a transformational impact on the future of the Centre and upon British art studies. Accordingly, PMC particularly welcomes applications from those who are under-represented within the academic field of the humanities in the UK.
