The AAH offers a range of bursaries, grants, awards and prizes throughout the year.
The AAH has a long history of giving away part of our income in the form of grants that support art history or visual culture.
The two main themes for AAH grants giving are:
1) Encouraging and promoting good art history practice through awards and prizes.
2) Giving financial assistance for research pursuits to those who cannot easily afford it.
