Art-Historical Research and Conservation

The University of Maryland Center for Art and Knowledge at The Phillips Collection

The Metropolitan Museum of Art offers resident fellowships in art history and conservation to qualified graduate students at the predoctoral level as well as to postdoctoral researchers. Projects should relate to the museum’s collections. The duration is usually one year, with the possibility of renewal for a second year. Applications for short-term fellowships for senior museum curators are also considered. The fields of research for art history candidates include Western art; Asian art; the arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas; antiquities; arms and armor; costumes; drawings; sculpture; paintings; illuminated manuscripts; musical instruments; and prints and photographs. Conservation fellows may work with paintings, objects, textiles, musical instruments, costumes, or paper, including photographs; placement is made according to training and experience. The application deadline is the first Friday in November for art history fellowships and the first Friday in December for conservation fellowships, both beginning in September of the following year.
