Current HNA members are eligible to apply for a 2024 HNA Fellowship. The topic of the research project must be within the field of the art and architecture of the Netherlands (Dutch and Flemish) from ca. 1350-1750, together with the art of Germany, England, and France, and their global trading networks. Up to $1500 may be requested for purposes such as: travel to collections or research facilities, purchase of photographs or reproduction rights, subvention of a publication, curatorial project, or a project in the digital humanities. We also will consider requests for coverage of childcare or other related costs to make research and writing time possible. Please note that language courses are not covered. For PhD candidates, be aware that these HNA fellowships aim to cover expenses for focused research within the wider PhD project, so be sure to specify in your proposal what aspect(s) of your dissertation you will be concentrating on for the purpose of your request. Priority will be given to projects that are close to conclusion and those not previously awarded an HNA Fellowship. Please note that HNA Board members are ineligible to apply.
HNA is committed to increasing the diversity of the field and its scholarship, as well as supporting the values of equity and inclusion. For this reason, we particularly encourage applications from BIPOC scholars, and from perspectives long underrepresented in the field of Northern European art.
Winners will be notified in February 2024, with funds to be distributed by April. The application should consist of: (1) a short description of project (1-2 pp), in which you describe your project and its significance, and situate it within the relevant literature; (2) a budget; (3) a list of further funds applied/received for the same project; and (4) a current C.V. Doctoral applicants must also include a letter of recommendation (maximum 1 page) from an advisor, which should be emailed separately by the referee under the subject line: HNA Fellowship Letter for [Candidate’s Name].
Applications should be compiled into a single pdf and sent via e-mail by January 15, 2024, to Ashley West, Vice-President, Historians of Netherlandish Art. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
