The Hamad bin Khalifa Travel Fellowship provides full financial support to up to 10 individuals who wish to attend the Symposium, covering the cost of their travel, meals and lodging and special events. These fellowships, which are underwritten by our sponsors – VCUarts, VCUarts Qatar and the Qatar Foundation – are intended to enable junior and senior scholars at all levels to attend the symposium. Preference will be given to applicants from diverse backgrounds with long-standing research interests in Islamic art and architecture, especially those that are currently working on a project that relates to the symposium theme.


The deadline has now passed and all applicants will be notified of their status by May 15.
