As part of our aim to encourage and support research projects in any area of sculpture studies, each year we offer a number of Fellowships to enable researchers of different backgrounds and disciplines to develop their work at the Institute.

Research Fellowships are intended for artists, scholars and curators working on historic and contemporary sculpture who can make particular use of the Institute's resources: our Research Library, Archive of sculptors' papers and the Leeds sculpture collections, which we manage in partnership with Leeds Museums and Galleries.

In 2014-15 up to four Research Fellows will be given the opportunity to spend a month in Leeds to develop their own research. In addition we 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. Up to two Senior Fellowships, for periods of between four to six weeks will be offered. Both Fellowships provide accommodation, travel expenses and a per diem.

We have now awarded our Research Fellowships for 2014-15. We will advertise for the following year's fellowships in late 2014.
