Senior Fellowship Program

Scholarship Description

Senior Fellowships are limited to those who have held the Ph.D. for five years or more or who possess a record of professional accomplishment at the time of application.  Individuals currently affiliated with the National Gallery of Art are not eligible for the Senior Fellowship program.  Senior Fellowships are awarded without regard to the age or nationality of the applicant.  Applications are reviewed by an external Selection Committee composed of scholars in the history of art.  Outside readers may assist in the evaluation of proposals.  Applications will be considered for study in the history, theory and criticism of the visual arts (painting, sculpture, landscape architecture, urbanism, graphics, film, photography, decorative arts, industrial design, and other arts) of any geographical area and of any period.  Applications are also solicited from scholars in other disciplines whose work examines artifacts or has implications for the analysis and criticism of physical form.  In addition, applications are solicited from scholars who are interested in research related to objects in the painting, sculpture, graphics, and other collections of the National Gallery of Art.  Fellowships are for full-time research, and scholars are expected to reside in Washington throughout their fellowship period and participate in the activities of the Center.  Each Senior Fellow, Visiting Senior Fellow, and Associate is provided with a study.  Lectures, colloquia, and informal discussions complement the fellowship program.
