The Palace Museum Taihe Visiting Scholar Fellowship Programme Application Announcement

故宫博物院“太和学者计划”(来访)申报公告

The Palace Museum is housed in the Forbidden City, the world's largest and best-preserved wooden palace complex, which possesses a collection of more than 1.86 million priceless treasures. The imperial architecture of the Ming and Qing dynasties and the rich collections that reside here together represent the crystallization of human civilization and wisdom; their contemporary significance—including historical, cultural, aesthetic, scientific and technological values—deserve our continuous exploration. It has been our constant academic focus to explore how to better protect, research, interpret, display and transmit the history and culture contained in the Forbidden City and its collections.

     故宫博物院拥有世界上规模最大、保存最完整的木结构宫殿建筑群,收藏着各类珍贵文物186多万件。明清皇家建筑及其丰富的院藏是人类文明与智慧的结晶,其中蕴含的历史价值、文化价值、审美价值、科技价值和时代价值需要我们持续不断地发掘。如何更好地保护、研究、阐释、展示和弘扬故宫及其藏品蕴含的历史文化,始终是我们不懈探索的学术问题。

In keeping with our innovative, open, and collaborative approach to academic research, the Palace Museum is inaugurating the Taihe Visiting Scholar Fellowship Programme ('Taihe Fellowship') to support outstanding academics from outside the Chinese mainland to conduct academic research and exchanges at the Palace Museum. Starting from 2022, the Taihe Fellowship, named after the grandest architectural structure in the Forbidden City, will be awarded to visiting museum professionals and scholars from higher learning and academic institutions outside the Chinese mainland.
