The J. S. Lee Memorial Fellowship Programme supports curators, museum professionals and art history research academics taking part in Chinese art related Fellowships in the Programme Participating Institutions. In order to realize the goal of promoting international cultural and intellectual exchange in the field of Chinese art, the Programme requires the applicant to be based in a museum or an institution in a place outside of his / her habitual residence. Fields of Fellowship supported 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 expense during the Fellowship period. However, the Programme does not fund course study and priority will be given to applicants who have limited exchange experiences.
- To promote worldwide professional exchange in the museum field and art history study for the development of traditional Chinese art; and
- To contribute to the personal professional development of curators, museum professionals and academics through research, training and collaborative projects at overseas museums and art institutions.
