Yale Center for British Art Visiting Scholar Awards


Visiting Scholar Awards are open to academics, artists, doctoral candidates, museum professionals, and writers, who are working in any field related to British visual and material culture. Recipients of the award have the opportunity to access the YCBA’s rich holdings of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, rare books, and manuscripts, as well as material from the wider Yale network of museums, libraries, and special collections.


Academics, museum professionals, artists, and doctoral candidates who are working in any field related to British visual and material culture are eligible to apply. Predoctoral applicants from North America must be ABD to qualify.

One award per annum is reserved for a member of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies. Scholars may apply to the Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, for awards in the same year; every effort will be made to offer consecutive dates.

Award Period

Residency dates for successful applicants in the 2024 cycle may be held between January 1, 2024, and December 31, 2024. Predoctoral awards may be held from one to two months. All other awards may be held from one to three consecutive months.

Travel and Accommodation

Awards cover the cost and arrangement of a J1 visa (when applicable), travel to and from New Haven, and include accommodations as well as a living allowance. Recipients are required to be in residence in New Haven for the duration of their award and must be free of all other significant professional responsibilities during their stay.
