Huntington Library Awards: past awards

The British Academy Huntington Library scheme ran from 1982 to 2011.

The British Academy’s special arrangement with the Huntington Library in San Marino, California enabled scholars to undertake a period of research of between one to three months, to a total of six months each year, at the Huntington Library with its unrivalled collection in American and British history, literature and art. The short-term fellowships were open to scholars of postdoctoral level or beyond ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands. The Academy paid the scholar's return fares and the Huntington Library provided a maintenance allowance.

The British Academy is grateful to the Huntington Library for the collaboration since 1982 which has, on average, supported six scholars visiting the UK each year from the USA, and a similar number from the UK visiting the Huntington. UK Scholars seeking funding to visit the Huntington Library may wish to apply direct to Library for a Fellowship, or to consider the Academy’s Small Research Grants scheme for funding to support a research visit.
