Residential Scholar Awards


The Yale Center for British Art offers three types of short-term residential awards to scholars undertaking research related to British art. While in residence, scholars have access to the Center’s rich holdings of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, rare books, and manuscripts, as well as primary and secondary reference materials. Scholars are also able to take advantage of the extensive collections at other Yale museums and libraries. They are given a dedicated working space in the Center’s Reference Library and encouraged to participate in events and programs, as well as to engage with the scholarly community of the university.
