One-Month Research Awards
Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection offers One-Month Research Awards of $3,000 to scholars holding the PhD or other relevant terminal degree (e.g., MLA for Garden and Landscape studies applicants) and working on research projects in Byzantine studies, Pre-Columbian studies, Garden and Landscape studies, or related fields. The awards were established to make the intellectual community as well as the library, rare book, garden, and museum resources of Dumbarton Oaks more widely available to a broader range of scholars for shorter terms and with some flexibility in starting dates. Awards are intended especially for those who might not be able to avail themselves of a longer-term fellowship at Dumbarton Oaks, or scholars in related disciplines who seek greater exposure to our fields of study.
Please submit an application electronically according to the following deadlines prior to your proposed research visit:
October 1 (for January 15 – June 30 award periods)
March 1 (for July 1 – December 20 award periods)
Once you have submitted your application via the online system, please also notify the department to which you are applying via email:
Byzantine Studies Byzantine2011@doaks.org
Garden and Landscape Studies Landscape@doaks.org
Pre-Columbian Studies Pre-Columbian@doaks.org
Awards will be announced within six weeks of the application deadline.
If you have any questions please email the Manager of Academic Programs at: fellowshipprograms at doaks dot org.
A completed online application should include:
A proposal of no more than 1,000 words that provides an overview of the project, explains its significance for your field, and identifies ways in which it will complement, expand or challenge prior research. Please describe in the statement the importance of Dumbarton Oaks library holdings or museum collections to your project.
