The Migelien Gerritzen Fund/Rijksmuseum Fund enables candidates to conduct conservation and/or scientific research on art works and historical artefacts. Focus should be the Rijksmuseum collection or ideation that has been initiated at the Rijksmuseum. A suitable project might entail technical research into objects in the Rijksmuseum’s collection and/or analytical techniques, preventive conservation, and treatment methodologies. This fellowship enables candidates to collaborate with conservators, curators and scientists active at the Rijksmuseum. The Fellowship will result in an article for publication, the content and form of which will be decided by the Fellow and his/her supervisors in consultation with the Rijksmuseum. This is a one-year Fellowship, with the possibility of renewal for one additional year. The Rijksmuseum will provide working space for the Fellows, in order to stimulate an exchange of knowledge, ideas and experience. Access will be provided to all necessary information in the museum, as well as to the library, conservation laboratories of the Rijksmuseum and the University of Amsterdam.
