External Award: Fellowships at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Fellowships at The Met are an opportunity for scholars from around the world to use the Museum as a place for exchange, research, and professional advancement. Fellows are fully integrated into the life of The Met and, through weekly gatherings and discussions, take part in research sharing and workshops that explore the inner workings of The Met. Fellows are given a workspace and focused access to research facilities, labs, libraries, collections, and the time and space to think.
All fellows must be in residence at the Metropolitan Museum during the fellowship period and all fellowships must take place between September 1, 2017, and August 31, 2018. Fellowships begin in September.
PhD candidates, postdoctoral scholars, and senior scientists and researchers are eligible to apply. Junior fellows are those applicants who have recently completed graduate-level training; senior fellows are well-established professionals with at least eight years of experience in the field and a proven publication record, or those who have their PhD in hand by the deadline date.
Junior fellows work closely with Met staff to receive training on scientific research and conservation practices. Senior fellows work on a specific research project that makes use of the Museum's collection and/or resources.
The number of fellowships awarded depends on funds and resources available.
The stipend amount for one year is $42,000 for junior fellows and $52,000 for senior fellows, with up to an additional $6,000 for travel (maximum of six weeks).
The application deadline is December 2, 2016 at 5:00PM EST. For more details and to apply please see here.
