The Chester Dale Fellowships are intended for individuals whose fields of study are related to the fine arts of the Western world and who are preferably United States citizens under the age of forty. The grants, which typically cover periods from three months to one year, are for research at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae of education, professional experience, honors, awards, and publications. Three letters of recommendation, at least one academic and one professional, none of whom may be current Met staff, are required. Please visit the fellowship's website or contact the Metropolitan Museum of Art for more information.
