Call for Applications: The Andrew Wyld Research Support Grant
The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art
The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art is delighted to announce that it will administer a new category of award from September 2014 on behalf of the Andrew Wyld Fund.
Andrew Wyld was a well-known and much respected London art dealer, specialising in eighteenth and nineteenth-century British watercolours. After his death in 2011, a group of friends and family decided to set up a fund in his memory; its aim is to enable students to do exactly as he did, namely to look at, and judge, works of art on paper for themselves.
Andrew Wyld Research Support Grants of up to £2,000 will be offered annually to graduate, doctoral and undergraduate students (undertaking dissertation research) working in the field of British works of art on paper of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Grants may be used towards expenses incurred in visiting prints and drawings collections, galleries, museums, sale rooms and other institutions for the purpose of studying British works of art on paper.
For more details about the grant and the application form please visit the Paul Mellon Centre’s website (below) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for applications is September 15, 2014.
