Fellowships in the Creative and Performing Arts

The Fellowships in the Creative and Performing Arts scheme aims to support artists* as research fellows within a research environment. It provides for the salary of the fellow and associated costs. Fellowships can be held for either 2 or 3 years full time, or for five years at either 0.4 or 0.6 FTE. * By artists, the AHRC is referring to visual artists, performers, musicians, creative writers, poets, and other producers of original creative work. Since 1 September 2005, all proposals to AHRC Schemes must be prepared on the basis of the full economic costs (fEC) of the research. We strongly recommend that applicants liaise with their research/ finance office about the full economic costs of their proposal well before the deadline. The 2008 deadline has now been confirmed as Thursday 25 September 2008. The scheme guidance is being updated and should be available from the website in June 2008. In the meantime, last year’s guidance can be accessed below for information only; whilst there are unlikely to be any major changes you are strongly advised to read the updated Research Funding Guide, Frequently Asked Questions and online Helptext before finalising your application. Please note that all proposals for this competition must be made through the cross-council Joint Electronic Submission (Je-S) System. Further information on this can be found here. If you need any assistance to use the system, please contact the Je-S Helpdesk on (01793) 444164 or on JeSHelp@rcuk.ac.uk. Please note that letters informing applicants whether they have been successful will be sent to their contact address as shown on their Je-S record: it is important that applicants ensure this address is correct as the AHRC will not check it against the CV or any other document in the proposal. If you are in any doubt, please contact the Je-S Helpdesk for assistance.
