The Wolfsonian's collection—among the largest university art collections in the country—focuses on North American and European art, propaganda, architecture, and industrial and graphic design dating from 1850 to 1950. The United States, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands are the countries most extensively represented in the collection, with a smaller but significant number of materials from Austria, Czechoslovakia, France, Japan, the former Soviet Union, Hungary, and more. With over 200,000 objects, the collection includes books, emphema, and archives from The Wolfsonian Library; works on paper (posters, prints, design drawings, and more); fine art (paintings and sculpture); decorative art (glass, textiles, ceramics, lighting); appliances; and beyond.

Since its inception in 1995, our fellowship program has supported projects from a wide range of academic fields to promote scholarly research on The Wolfsonian's collection. Fellowships are awarded for full-time research at the museum, generally for periods of 3–4 weeks.

Fellows receive:

  • A stipend
  • Accommodations
  • Round-trip travel

The program is open to holders of master's or doctoral degrees, Ph.D. candidates, and others with a significant record of professional achievement in relevant fields. Scholars from outside of the U.S. are eligible. Applicants are encouraged to email research@thewolf.fiu.edu to discuss their project prior to submitting an application.

Applications are due December 31.
