George Gurney Fellowship

Description

The George Gurney Fellowship funds a six-month research appointment in American sculpture in honor of the distinguished career of SAAMÔÇÖs former curator of sculpture. Residencies should take place June to December 2023 or January to August 2024. SAAM believes that recruiting and maintaining an equitable, inclusive, and diverse cohort of fellows is critical to our mission. We welcome applications from qualified persons of color; who are Indigenous; with disabilities; who are LGBTQ+; first-generation college graduates; those from low-income households; and who are veterans. The Smithsonian does not discriminate on grounds of race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age, or disability. Two references are required. Applicants conducting research with Indigenous communities should provide information on the current state of consultation, appropriate contacts, and plans for sharing research findings with these communities. A tribal letter of approval or tribal community endorsement will strengthen a proposal and may be submitted as an additional reference letter. Please visit the scholarship's website for more information.
