The Met Fellowship Program
Join a community of scholars in the fields of art history, archaeology, museum education, conservation, and related sciences, as well as scholars in other disciplines, whose dynamic and interdisciplinary projects require close study of objects in The Met collection.
Annually, The Met awards over 50 fellowships to scholars from around the world. It is an educational priority to make The Met a laboratory for art and ideas. As a result, we support academic investigations of the Museum's collection spanning more than 5,000 years from every corner of the world and contribute to broader scholarly discourses.
Met fellowships are awarded to junior scholars, postdoctoral and senior academics, and museum professionals for independent study or research.
Note: The descriptions on this page reflect the Museum's current plans as of July 2020. We hope to continue to offer a robust and meaningful program. However, due to the unpredictable and continually evolving circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Museum may need to change, delay, shorten, and/or cancel the 2020 and/or 2021 Fellowship Programs. We will provide periodic updates regarding any major changes or developments on this page.
