Postgraduate Fellowships for Historical Research
- 12 January 2017
The Johan Huizinga Fund/Rijksmuseum Fund offers outstanding postgraduate candidates the opportunity to conduct historical research into objects in the Rijksmuseum collection. These fellowships are open to candidates of all nationalities and with varied specialisms.
The aim of the programme is to train a new generation of museum professionals: inquisitive object-based specialists who will further develop understanding of art and history for the future.
The Rijksmuseum is a Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history in Amsterdam. The museum is located at the Museum Square in the borough Amsterdam South, close to the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the Concertgebouw.
Candidates should have proven research capabilities, academic credentials and excellent written and spoken knowledge of two languages (English and preferably Dutch or German).
The Johan Huizinga Fellowship is open to recent graduates (at the Master’s level), as well as doctoral and post-doctoral candidates.
The TOEFL® test is a popular option for students to meet the English-language requirements for scholarships.
Fellowship stipends are awarded to help support a Fellow’s study and research efforts during the tenure of their appointment. Funding is available for one Johan Huizinga Fellowship a year. The stipend of €16,500 (less applicable taxes and deductions) is for a period of six months commencing 1 September 2017, the start of the academic year.
