PURPOSE

The purpose of this grant is to give ambitious students the opportunity to pursue a research career within art history research and practice-based artistic research and thereby make a significant contribution to the field of arts research in Denmark.

 

With this call, The Novo Nordisk Foundation invites candidates to apply for a PhD scholarship within art history research before or after 1900 or practice-based artistic research in art or curating. The scholarships run for three years.

 

ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for a Mads Øvlisen PhD scholarship applicants must have obtained a Master’s degree or equivalent prior to submitting the application. During the PhD period the applicant must be enrolled at a university in Denmark and at the same time be employed either at the university or at another Danish administrating host institution, i.e. a museum or an art academy. A letter of commitment from the university and host institution must be submitted with the application.

 

Please note that some universities and institutions may have internal deadlines that fall before the Novo Nordisk Foundation application deadline and applicants are therefore encouraged to contact the university and host institution early in the application process.

 

RESEARCH FIELDS

Five scholarships are available for funding within the following four research fields:

 

  • 1 PhD scholarship within art history research before 1900 is awarded to an applicant whose research project is within the field of art history research with special emphasis on art history and/or art theory subjects from the period before 1900.

 

  • 1 PhD scholarship within art history research after 1900 is awarded to an applicant whose research project is within the field of art history research with special emphasis on art history and/or art theory subjects from the period after 1900.

 

  • 1 practice-based PhD scholarship in art is awarded to an applicant, whose research project is based on the applicant’s artistic practice. The research project must consist of a written dissertation and an artistic work.

 

  • 1 practice-based PhD scholarship in curating is awarded to an applicant, whose research project is based on the applicant’s curatorial practice. The research project must consist of a written dissertation and a curatorial examination.
     

A fifth PhD scholarship with an extraordinary potential will be awarded to an applicant within any of the above categories regardless of field and era with a project proposal of very high quality with regard to originality in choice of research questions, hypothesis, methodology and/or empirical data. This scholarship cannot be specifically applied for.

 

FUNDING

The maximum that may be applied for is DKK 2 million per scholarship covering salary, operational costs, travel costs, tuition fee and administrative support.
