Drawing Institute at The Morgan Library & Museum
Research and Study of Old Master and Modern Drawings

The Morgan Library

The Drawing Institute at The Morgan Library & Museum is devoted to the study of the history, collecting, function, interpretation, conservation, and theory of old master and modern drawing, with the goal of stimulating new lines of investigation and discourse. Four to six annual fellowships are granted to postdoctoral and predoctoral scholars, generally for a four-to-six month term. Fellows have access to the Morgan’s outstanding collection of drawings and prints; illuminated, literary, and historical manuscripts; illustrated books and bindings; and archival materials, and have full use of the Library's extensive research resources and facilities. Projects may focus in some way on works in the Morgan's collection, although this is not a prerequisite for consideration or support. Cooperative programming and joint fellowships exist with the International Music and Art Foundation Centre at the Courtauld Gallery in London and with the Menil Drawing Institute and Study Center in Houston. Symposia, seminars, and lectures are further components of the Drawing Institute's program; fellows are encouraged to participate in these events, in addition to sharing their ongoing research through bi-weekly conversations. Plans for publications and exhibitions that are the direct outcome of research at the Drawing Institute are currently in the works. Periodically updated application information, and more on each class of fellows, can be found at The deadline for fellowships is in early February.
