Art History Fellowships 2012-2013 at The Met

The Metropolitan Museum of Art offers annual resident fellowships in art history to qualified graduate students at the predoctoral level as well as to postdoctoral researchers. Projects should relate to the Museum’s collections. The fields of research for art history candidates include Asian art, arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, antiquities, arms and armor, costumes, drawings, illuminated manuscripts, paintings, photographs, prints, sculpture, textiles, and Western art. Some art history fellowships for travel abroad are also available for students whose projects involve firsthand examination of paintings in major European collections.

The application deadline for art history fellowships awarded for the 2012–2013 year is November 4, 2011.

Please note that not all fellowships are open to international scholars. It would be advisable to contact The Met before applying to check your eligibility.
