SRS Public Engagement Scheme

The Society for Renaissance Studies has established a funding scheme for Public Engagement (‘Knowledge Exchange’ or ‘Impact-activities’). Bids can be made to support any form of public engagement for Renaissance studies, broadly construed. The Society’s understanding of public engagement is that a major effort to communicate beyond the academy can be demonstrated, and/or that the event will reach a public not consisting primarily of academics. This includes, but is not limited to Impact activities, under REF criteria. (Deadline 1st Dec)

Museums and Galleries Research Award

The Museums and Galleries Research Award is a bursary scheme to enable scholars to develop advanced research in the history of art (and related disciplines) in and out their country of residence. Preference may be given to subjects growing out of a current museum project with a cross-disciplinary approach, to subjects related to the making and collecting of works of art during the period of the Renaissance (up to c. 1700). (Deadline 1st Dec)
