Research Fellowship Program

New Online Application Process Coming Late Fall 2018!

Winterthur Welcomes Researchers!

Winterthur offers unparalleled access to a wealth of museum, garden, and library collections supporting material culture research. As an interdisciplinary center for collections-based scholarship and conservation, Winterthur encourages researchers to explore and immerse themselves in holistic and intimate inquiry from a wide range of disciplines.

Academic, independent, and museum scholars as well as advanced graduate students are invited to apply for short-term (1-3 months) and long-term (4-9 month) residential research fellowships that can be used any time throughout 2019-2020. Fellows conduct research in a broad range of scholarly topics and academic disciplines, including: material culture studies, social and cultural history, art history, literary studies, American studies, design history, the decorative arts, landscape architecture and design, consumer culture, and conservation studies covering global topics from the 17th to the 20th centuries. We also support fellowships designed for artists, writers, filmmakers, horticulturalists, craftspeople, and others who wish to examine, study, and immerse themselves in Winterthur’s vast collections in order to inspire creative and artistic works for general, non-academic audiences.

All applicants are strongly encouraged to search WinterCat and our online Museum Collection, visit Winterthur, and contact staff members to discuss potential research projects. The suitability of a project to Winterthur's collections is the primary consideration of the fellowship award committee.
