Field Museum Graduate Student Fellowships

Scholarship Description

A limited number of Field Museum fellowships are available for graduate students engaged in dissertation research associated with the Museum. These fellowships provide stipend support. Candidates will be expected to have formal involvement with the Museum; a Field Museum curator must serve as member or chair on the student’s academic committee, and the research should rely heavily upon the collections and facilities of the Museum. Students must be in residence in the Chicago area and are expected to spend a significant portion of their research time at the Museum for the duration of the fellowship. Eligible graduate students must have completed the preliminary examination. The period of appointment is one year and starts on September 1st. Applicants must contact the sponsoring curator well in advance of the application deadline. Applicants who have been awarded a Field Museum fellowship by the scholarship committee previously are not eligible to apply for a second fellowship.
