Grants of up to £2000 will be awarded from the Francis Haskell Memorial Fund this year to enable scholars to spend time in libraries or archives carrying out advanced research in the history of western art. Preference may be given to candidates in the early stages of their careers; to subjects related to the commissioning, collecting or interpretation of works of art made before 1914; and to research carried out outside the applicant’s country of residence. Scholars from any country may apply. An additional award may be made by the Trustees of The Burlington Magazine Foundation in conjunction with the Francis Haskell Trustees.
In view of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and its negative effects on foreign travel and access to archives and libraries, scholarships have not been awarded in 2020. An announcement concerning 2021 scholarships will be made when the situation becomes clearer.
