The Wolfsonian Fellowship program will be on hiatus during the 2017–18 academic year, as the museum undertakes improvements to its headquarters building and storage facilities. We will not, therefore, be accepting fellowship applications in 2016. The next application deadline will be December 31, 2017 for periods in residence beginning in mid-2018.
The Wolfsonian–FIU Fellowship program promotes scholarly research on The Wolfsonian’s collections. Since its inception in 1995, the program has supported projects from a wide range of academic fields. Fellowships are awarded for full-time research at The Wolfsonian, generally for periods of three to four weeks. Fellowships include a stipend, accommodations, and round-trip travel. The timing of dates will be negotiated with individual awardees. The program is open to holders of master’s or doctoral degrees, Ph.D. candidates, and to others who have a significant record of professional achievement in relevant fields. Scholars from outside of the United States are eligible. Fellowships are awarded without regard to race, color, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, age, or disability. The annual deadline is December 31 for a residency beginning no earlier than July 1 of the following year. Applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss their project with the Fellowship Coordinator prior to submitting proposals and submit their application online via The Wolfsonian–FIU Fellowship Application. Please contact the Fellowship Coordinator for further information. The Wolfsonian belongs to the Association of Research Institutes in Art History (ARIAH), a consortium of museums and other institutions that support advanced research in the visual arts.
