The Research Fellowships Program of the National Gallery of Canada encourages and supports advanced research. The fellowships emphasize the use and investigation of the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, including those of the Gallery’s Library and Archives. 2009/2010 competitive fellowships are offered in the field of Canadian Art (including the Indigenous Art of Canada); European and Modern Art; and Art Conservation.

Applications are welcomed from art historians, curators, critics, independent researchers, conservators, conservation scientists and other professionals in the visual arts, museology and related disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, who have a graduate degree or equivalent publication history. The fellowships are open to international competition.

Fellowships are tenable only at the National Gallery of Canada. The term of full-time residency must fall within the period 1 September 2009 to 31 August 2010. Awards can be up to $5,000 a month, including expenses and stipend, to a maximum of $30,000.

The National Gallery of Canada Library and Archives houses the most extensive collection of visual arts literature in Canada (250,000 books and periodicals), and constitutes the national research collection in the field. Materials on Canadian art are collected comprehensively. Holdings are international in scope, with notable strengths in the history of western European and North American art and the history of photography.

Deadline: 30 April 2009.
