Current and Former Fellows

Current and Former Fellows

The Museum has supported more than fourteen hundred researchers since the fellowship program began in 1951. Many of the participants have gone on to become professors, curators, conservators, or directors of institutions in the museum and academic worlds.

We invite former fellows to use the Fellows Directory (PDF) to connect with other alumni of the Fellowship Program. Please note that the directory is password protected. If you are a former fellow and do not have access, contact us.
