Hagley/Winterthur Flwps in Arts & Industries

Fellowship recipients are required to spend their time in residence at Hagley and Winterthur, or at least to travel there on a regular and consistent basis. Low-cost rental accommodations may be available at both institutions. As much as possible, recipients should be prepared to devote their full time to the fellowship for the duration of their appointment. The fellowship program is also valuable for the collegial association it provides. As centers for advanced study in the humanities, Hagley and Winterthur are focal points for a community of scholars. Fellows are expected to participate in seminars which meet at both institutions, as well as attend noontime colloquia, lectures, concerts, exhibits, and other public programs offered during their tenure.
