Rijksmuseum | Fellowship Programme 2016 | 2017

Organisational Units

The Rijksmuseum operates a Fellowship Programme for outstanding candidates working on the art and history of the Low Countries whose principal concern is object-based research.

The aim of the programme is to train a new generation of museum professionals. The focus of research should relate to the Rijksmuseum’s collection, and may encompass any of its varied holdings, including Netherlandish paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, prints, drawings, photography and historical artefacts. The programme offers students and academic scholars access to the museum’s collections, library, conservation laboratories and curatorial expertise.

The Rijksmuseum Fellowship Programme provides opportunities for recent graduates (at the Master’s level), as well as doctoral and post-doctoral candidates. The programme is open to candidates of all nationalities and with varied specialisms (historians, curators, conservators, historians and scientists). Fellowships will be awarded for a duration ranging from 6-24 months. All Fellowships will start in September 2016.

For the 2016-2017 academic year, candidates can apply for:
The Migelien Gerritzen Fellowship for conservation research
The Manfred & Hanna Heiting Fellowship for photo-historical research
The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship for art historical research
The Johan Huizinga Fellowship for historical research
