We are delighted to launch a new bursary programme for researchers (including artists, curators and programmers) who work with the moving image and are based in Scotland. The first set of bursaries will be made available in May 2022, allowing three researchers free digital access to the LUX collection for a two-week period that month. Further rounds of bursaries will be publicised every three months (in July, September, January and May and so on). These new bursaries replace our pre-pandemic in-person research sessions.

The LUX collection is managed by LUX in London and is the largest distribution collection of artists’ moving image in Europe with over 5000 works by 1,251 artists from the 1920s to the present day. A complete list of works in the LUX Collection is available on the LUX online catalogue.

Selected bursary recipients will receive a login valid for a two-week period that will offer access to all works currently available from LUX.

We will draw names out of a hat to select bursary recipients. To support as many people as possible, no individual will be awarded one of these bursaries more than once a year.

To apply, please email your name to email hidden; JavaScript is required with May research bursary’ in the subject line, by 10am on 25 April 2022.

Selected bursary recipients will be notified by 3 May 2022.
