A National Maritime Museum fellowship bid should show the applicant will hit the ground running

Top tips:

  • Before you apply, do thorough research to ensure the documents you need are at the museum.
  • Consider conducting a sample timed review to calculate how long the research will take you.
  • Do not shy away from your project’s wider relevance, beyond maritime history.
  • The fellowship is flexible and requires fellows to have a firm grasp on the research they will undertake when they apply.

The National Maritime Museum’s Caird Research Fellowships allow prolonged access to the museum’s collection to support research in maritime history and other fields.
