Since its inception in 1995, our fellowship program has supported projects from a wide range of academic fields to promote scholarly research on The Wolfsonian's collection. Fellowships are awarded for full-time research at the museum, generally for periods of 3–4 weeks.

Fellows receive:

  • A stipend
  • Accommodations
  • Round-trip travel

The program is open to holders of master's or doctoral degrees, Ph.D. candidates, and others with a significant record of professional achievement in relevant fields. Scholars from outside of the U.S. are eligible. Applicants are encouraged to email to discuss their project prior to submitting an application.

Please note: The Wolfsonian's fellowship program will be on hiatus during the 2021–22 academic year as the museum accommodates a backlog of awardees who have been unable to visit due to COVID–19. The next application deadline is December 31, 2021, for fellowships in Fall 2022 and Spring 2023.
