The J. S. Lee Memorial Fellowship Programme supports curators, museum professionals and Chinese art history research academics taking part in fellowships in the Programme Participating Institutions. In order to realize the goal of promoting international exchange and cooperation in the field of Chinese art, the Programme requires applicants to be based in museums or institutions in places outside their habitual residence. Fields of Fellowships include Chinese art history, curatorship, archaeology, conservation, museum management and museum education.
Selected Fellows will have the opportunities to work under leading curatorial professionals, and to participate in curatorial work and research for a period of four to twelve months. The Fellowship fund will cover international round-trip airfare, accommodation and living expenses during the attachment period. However, the Programme does NOT fund course studies.
The Programme encourages the exchange between the East and the West and priority of the Fellowship will be given to applicants who have limited exchange experiences.
- To facilitate the exchange of curatorial expertise on a worldwide basis; and
- To contribute to the professional enhancement of curators and academics in Chinese art through attachments and fellowships at museums and art institutions in China and overseas.
