  Fellowships

Het Scheepvaartmuseum (the National Maritime Museum) and the Society Dutch Historical Maritime Museum promote scientific research on the museum’s collection. A special foundation has been set up and every year three fellowships are granted to students and academics from the Netherlands and abroad: the Dr. Ernst Crone fellowship, the Mr. Peter Rogaar fellowship and the Prof. J.C.M. Warnsinck fellowship.


Het Scheepvaartmuseum develops its collection around five main themes and has defined five research areas connected to the five main themes: Sailing folk, Water recreation, Art and the maritime world, The Dutch and the other and Innovation in shipbuilding. We kindly ask candidates who wish to apply for a fellowship to submit a proposal within these frameworks. Read more about the application procedure. You can download the application form here.
