The Metropolitan Museum of Art annually welcomes a vibrant group of graduate students, museum professionals, and senior scholars from around the world to undertake research and independent study as Metropolitan Museum fellows.
The diversity of fellows' projects reflects the historic and geographic diversity of the Museum's collection. The community of fellows becomes immersed in the life of the Museum and takes part in a robust program of colloquia, round-table seminars, research-sharing workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, conversations with Museum staff, and tours of the collection and exhibitions. As they discuss research questions, look closely at objects, and share the experience of living in New York City, fellows form long-lasting professional and personal relationships.
For qualified graduate students at the predoctoral level, postdoctoral researchers, and senior museum professionals.
For those who have recently completed their PhD and are interested in research and cataloguing.
