Call for Applications: 2020–21 Fellowships at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Thursday, October 17, 2019  

The Metropolitan Museum of Art welcomes applications from scholars of the history of art and visual culture, archaeology, conservation and related sciences, as well as those in other disciplines whose projects relate to objects in The Met’s collection.

The tremendous diversity of fellows' projects reflects the historic and geographic diversity of the Museum's collection. The community of fellows becomes immersed in the intellectual life of the Museum and takes part in a robust program of colloquia, roundtable seminars, research sharing workshops, behind-the-scenes tours of exhibitions, conversations with Museum staff, and visits to the curatorial and conservation departments. Fellows form long-lasting professional relationships as they discuss research questions, look closely at objects, and share the experience of living in New York City.

Applications for the 2020–2021 season are open. Please visit for more information. Questions may be sent to
