Annual Conference Bursaries

2020 Annual Conference Bursaries for Doctoral and Early Career Researchers

We are delighted to announce that we will be offering bursaries for doctoral and early career researchers to attend the 2020 Annual Conference in Newcastle.

The bursaries are granted by the Association for Art History’s Doctoral and Early Career Research (DECR) board. These competitive bursaries are available to speakers, session panel organisers and non-speakers who would benefit from attending this international academic conference which features world-class research.

The aim of the Association’s Doctoral and Early Career Research board is to provide a support system and platform for current doctoral researchers and those within 5 years of receiving their phd doctorate. We work with undergraduate, postgraduate and emerging scholars to provide opportunities to present recent and on-going research at a range of annual events.

Who can apply
The conference bursaries are open to all current doctoral and early career researchers studying art history, in its broadest sense, who would benefit from attending the Annual Conference in Newcastle free of charge. Applicants must also be current members of the Association for Art History.

How to apply
Applicants are required to send a brief biography along with a 200-250 word note outlining why a bursary to the Annual Conference would be helpful and beneficial to their research, professional development and future career. These bursary conference proposals must be emailed to the DECR Convenor, Caroline McCaffrey-Howarth.

Please email your application by Friday 24 January 2020 with the title DECR Annual Conference Bursary. Successful candidates will be notified by the middle of February 2020. If your bursary application is unsuccessful we will honour the early booking ticket rates (this applies only to those who applied for a bursary). If you have any other queries or questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Application deadline: 24 January 2020
