Grant of the Week: The Joe and Wanda Corn Fellowship

The Smithsonian American Art Museum and its Renwick Gallery invite applications for research fellowships in art and visual culture of the United States. Fellowships are residential and support full-time independent and dissertation research.

The Joe and Wanda Corn Fellowship, endowed by their former students Mike Wilkins and Sheila Duignan, supports scholars whose research interests span American art and American history. Recipients will draw on the Smithsonian’s broad resources in both areas.

The stipend for a one-year predoctoral fellowship is $32,500, plus research and travel allowances. The stipend for a one-year senior or postdoctoral fellowship is $47,500, plus research and travel allowances. The standard term of residency is twelve months, but shorter terms will be considered; stipends are prorated for periods of less than twelve months. 

Deadline: December 1, 2014 is the application deadline for fellowships to begin on or after June 1, 2015. Awards are based on merit.
