The Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellowship is awarded to promising young scholars whose research projects relate to the Museum's collection, as well to distinguished visiting scholars from the United States and abroad who can serve as teachers and advisers and make their expertise available to catalog and refine the collection. These fellowships are usually awarded for a maximum of one year, most of which should be spent at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Applicants should have received their doctorate or have completed substantial work toward it. Short-term fellowships for senior scholars are also available. In addition to the CV, official transcripts (junior applicants only), and three letters of recommendation, please also include a cover letter addressing your interest in the fellowship position, a statement, and a copy of a published paper or recent writing sample. Please visit the fellowship's website for more information.
