The expectation is that Fellows should undertake a significant piece of publishable work during their tenure, and that the Fellowships should lead to a more permanent academic position

Kress Foundation Fellow

Advanced training in European art history requires direct exposure to the object of study, prolonged access to key information resources such as libraries and photographic archives, the development of professional relationships with colleagues abroad, and sustained immersion in European cultures. These related needs are often best satisfied by extended engagement with a European art research center. The Kress History of Art: Institutional Fellowships are intended to provide promising young art historians with the opportunity to experience just this kind of immersion.

Area of research: History of art and related disciplines (such as archaeology, architecture, or lassics). Dissertation research must focus on European art from antiquity to the early 19th century.

Available for 2 years

Criteria: Pre-doctoral candidates; US citizens or matriculated at an American university. Candidates must be nominated by their academic department.

Open to US PhD students in art history
