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.
All fellowships must take place between September 1, 2012, and August 31, 2013. Fellowships generally begin in September. The number of fellowships awarded depends upon the funds available; the stipend amount for one year is $42,000 for senior fellows and $32,000 for predoctoral fellows, with up to an additional $6,000 for travel. Health care benefits are included. Senior fellowships are intended for those who hold a PhD on the date of application and for well-established scholars.
