The Novo Nordisk Foundation is doubling its support for art history research projects from DKK 1 million to DKK 2 million annually. The increased funding for art history research projects will allow the most talented and ambitious researchers to apply for support for larger and longer-term projects. Researchers may now apply for a grant for a project lasting 1, 2 or 3 years.
The augmented funding aims to contribute to developing art research in Denmark to the highest level and to achieve greater international impact.
Project grants are awarded following evaluation of the applications by the Foundation’s Committee on Art History Research, which was established in 2000.
FUNDING FOR MADS ØVLISEN PHD SCHOLARSHIPS ALSO INCREASES
The Foundation is also increasing Mads Øvlisen PhD Scholarships by DKK 100,000 from DKK 1.5 million to DKK 1.6 million per Scholarship. The Foundation awards two such Scholarships every year, one within art history research and one within practice-based research.
The PhD Scholarships are awarded following evaluation of the applications by the Foundation’s Committee on Art History Research – Mads Øvlisen Scholarships, which was established in 2006.
