The Amon Carter Museum of American Art invites applications for its 2014 Davidson Family Fellowship. Established in 1996 by a generous gift from the Davidson Family Charitable Foundation, the fellowship provides support for scholars holding the PhD (or equivalent) or PhD candidates to work on research projects in American art that advance scholarship by connecting with objects in the museum’s permanent collection.
Successful candidates should have an in-depth knowledge of the history of American art and culture in areas represented by the museum’s collections that is demonstrated in coursework and/or publications. Proposals from qualified individuals in disciplines other than art history are also encouraged. Preference will be given to projects that most fully leverage the complement of collections and research resources available at the museum. Awards are based on merit and are open to all qualified individuals. Applicants may be affiliated with a university, museum, or independent.
The stipend rate is $3,000 per month. The fellowship may range from a minimum one-month to a maximum four-month period of full-time research at the museum. The application deadline is April 15, 2014, for a fellowship period to start on or after September 1, 2014. Housing and travel expenses are to be managed by the fellow, although the museum is available for assistance in locating accommodations. The museum will announce awards by May 31, 2014.
