Henry Moore Institute Fellowships for Artists and Curators

Deadline: 12 January 2015
Open to: artists, scholars and curators working on historic and contemporary sculpture 
accommodation, travel expenses and a per diem stipend


The Henry Moore Institute, based in Leeds, is a world-recognised centre for the study of sculpture. The Institute hosts a year-round programme of exhibitions, conferences and lectures, as well as developing research and publications, to expand the understanding and scholarship of historical and contemporary sculpture.

Each year the Henry Moore Institute offers a number of Fellowships to enable researchers of different backgrounds and disciplines to develop their work. Up to four fellows will be given the opportunity to spend a month in Leeds to develop their own research. With access to the Institute’s resources and an on-going dialogue with the staff, fellows are free to pursue their own interests in a supportive and stimulating environment. In addition the Institute will support up to two six-week Senior Fellowships, which are intended to give established scholars time and space to develop a research project free from usual work commitments.


The research fellowships are open to artists, scholars and curators working on historic and contemporary sculpture who can make particular use of the Institute’s resources: Research Library, Archive of sculptors’ papers and the Leeds sculpture collections.


Both fellowships provide accommodation, travel expenses and a per diem stipend.


In order to apply for the 2015-16 fellowships you must send a CV, a letter of application and a research proposal (750 words) to Kirstie Gregory at:  kirstie@henry-moore.org.

The deadline to apply is 12 January 2015.
