For the 2021-2022 fellowship, the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) welcomes international, independent research proposals which open new perspectives on the museum’s collection, its history and activities. Apply by 17 January 2021.

The purpose of the Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme is to encourage and support scholarly investigation, and to contribute to academic discourses while strengthening bonds between the museum and universities. The programme enables highly talented candidates to base part of their research at the Rijksmuseum, and offers access to the museum’s expertise, collections, library and laboratories. Furthermore, the programme facilitates opportunities for Fellows to engage in workshops and excursions to encourage exchange of knowledge - both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.
