Migelien Gerritzen Fellowship 2023 for conservation and scientific research

The Migelien Gerritzen Fellowship welcomes proposals for conservation and scientific research that make use of the Rijksmuseum’s collection and resources.

The purpose of the Fellowship Programme is to encourage and support scholarly investigation, and to contribute to academic discourses while strengthening bonds between the museum and universities. The programme enables highly talented candidates to base part of their research at the Rijksmuseum, and offers access to the museum’s expertise, collections, library and laboratories. Furthermore, it facilitates opportunities for Fellows to engage in workshops and excursions to encourage exchange of knowledge – both amongst themselves and the broader museum audience.
