Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Manfred & Hanna Heiting Fund enables the Rijksmuseum to annually award two postgraduate fellowships that stimulate photo-historical research by prospective curators from the Netherlands or abroad. The research is based on the National Photo Collection held by the Rijksmuseum’s Print Room. It will form the basis for an essay on classical photography pertaining to original works from the Rijksmuseum’s rich holdings of photographic works and, where possible, to objects in other collections.
The Rijksmuseum Research Fellowship Programme
As part of the Rijksmuseum Research Fellowship Programme, the Manfred & Hanna Heiting Fellowship provides support for pre-doctoral, doctoral and post-doctoral candidates. It is set out to train a new generation of museum professionals: inquisitive object-based specialists who will further develop understanding of Netherlandish art and history for the future.
The Rijksmuseum will provide office space in which the fellows can work, in order to stimulate an exchange of knowledge, ideas and experience. Access will be provided to all necessary information in the museum, as well as to the library and the resources of the Netherlands Institute for Art History (RKD) in The Hague and the University of Amsterdam.
Application and procedure
The closing date for all applications is 15 March 2015, at 6:00 p.m. (Amsterdam time/CET). Selection will take place in April 2015 by an international committee. Applicants will be notified by 1 May 2015. The fellowship will start in September 2015.
