About the fellowship programme
Artistic research is at the centre of the programme. Unlike an artist’s grant to develop and exhibit one or more specific ideas, you need to explain what, why and how you want to research your ideas, as well as to be able to define the relevant field of research in order for us to assess whether KHiB is the appropriate institution for your application and, if not, possibly to recommend an alternative institution.

About you as an applicant
You must have the following qualifications:

1. Documented and recognised artistic activity/development of high international standard
2. MA from Norway or abroad or corresponding documented knowledge

Please include a formal academic qualification as a lecturer. Should you not have one, then you will need to attach the relevant documentation of your artistic achievements for assessment.

Should you already have completed a PhD in a related area or have received recognition as a senior lecturer, then you are overqualified and cannot apply.

About the application process
Submit an outline of the project (minimum 500 words) and your CV by email by 1 September at the latest to KHiB Adviser for Art and Design Research and Development ([email protected]).

We will then contact you in September/October. The rest of the application process runs until June the following year and includes the important dates listed below:

19 August
Open information meeting for potential applicants at KHiB, Strømgaten 1, Bergen at 13h.

1 September
Deadline to submit minimum 500 word outline and your CV to Research Adviser
