Applications Open for the 2021 INHA Chastel Grant

Funding is available to art history researchers of any nationality for stays of up to six weeks in Rome.

France’s National Institute of Art History (Institut National de l’Histoire de l’Art – INHA) was founded in 2001 and is a public scientific, cultural and professional establishment under the authority of the French ministries of Education and of Culture. Its objective is to provide a meeting point for researchers and curators from museums and libraries, in conjunction with other French and international art history institutions.

Since 2010, the INHA and the Académie de France à Rome (French Academy in Rome) have awarded two grants each year for postdoctoral research on art from the Renaissance to the present day. The funding is intended for art history researchers wishing to travel to Rome to carry out research. The laureates are housed at the Academy’s Villa Médicis for a period of four to six weeks.

Both French and non-French art history researchers are eligible to apply. Candidates must hold a PhD, have equivalent professional experience or work as curators.

The amount of the funding is €3,000 per person.

Applications for the 2021 call must be submitted to the INHA by the deadline of 7 November 2021 (23:59 CET).
