The Metropolitan Museum of Art welcomes applications from scholars of art history, archaeology, education, and conservation and related sciences, as well as from scholars in other disciplines whose projects are interdisciplinary in nature and relate to objects in The Met collection.
The tremendous diversity of fellows' projects reflects the historic and geographic diversity of the Museum's collection. The community of fellows becomes immersed in the intellectual 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. Fellows form long-lasting professional and personal relationships as they discuss research questions, look closely at objects, and share the experience of living in New York City.
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.
