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 may discuss their project with the Fellowship Coordinator prior to submitting their online 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.
Important note for applicants
As the museum undertakes improvements to its storage and headquarters building, parts of the collection will become inaccessible to researchers for extended periods. Access to prints and drawings, textiles, and small decorative arts items will be especially limited, and projects that rely largely on those materials will likely not be possible during the upcoming (2018–19) fellowship period.
