Advance your research skills - and jump start your career!
Smithsonian fellowships are offered to individuals who design and develop proposals to conduct independent research in fields pursued by and of interest to the Institution. Fellowships differ from internships, which are prearranged supervised learning experiences which take place in a specific timeframe.
NEH Fellowships are competitive awards granted to individual scholars pursuing projects that embody exceptional research, rigorous analysis, and clear writing. Applications must clearly articulate a project’s value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both.
Competitive fellowships supported by the Kress Foundation are awarded to art historians and art conservators in the final stages of their preparation for professional careers, as well as to students of art history and related fields who are interested in art museum education and curation.
Join a community of scholars in the fields of art history, archaeology, museum education, conservation, and related sciences, as well as scholars in other disciplines, whose dynamic and interdisciplinary projects require close study of objects in The Met collection.
