Grant of the Week: Fellowships at Dumbarton Oaks

Zoë Jackson | Sep 21, 2018

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring fellowships from Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection.

Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection is an institute in Washington, DC, administered by the Trustees for Harvard University. It supports research and learning internationally in Byzantine, garden and landscape, and pre-Columbian studies through fellowships, internships, meetings, and exhibitions. 

Fellowships are awarded to Byzantine, garden and landscape, and pre-Columbian scholars on the basis of demonstrated scholarly ability and preparation of the candidate, including knowledge of requisite languages, interest and value of the study or project, and the project’s relevance to the resources of Dumbarton Oaks. Applications for Project Grants, Regular, Junior, Tyler, and Summer Fellowships are due November 1.

Junior Fellowships are for degree candidates who at the time of application have fulfilled all preliminary requirements for a PhD or appropriate final degree and will be working on a dissertation or final project at Dumbarton Oaks under the direction of a faculty member at their own university. Graduate students who do not have the PhD in hand by the application deadline of November 1 must apply as Junior Fellows. Successful applicants for Junior Fellowships who have the PhD in hand by the beginning of the Fellowship term may be granted the status and stipend of Fellows. 

Fellowships are for scholars who hold a doctorate or appropriate final degree or have established themselves in their field and wish to pursue their own research.

Summer Fellowships are for Byzantine or pre-Columbian scholars at any level beyond the first year of graduate (post-baccalaureate) study. 

Tyler Fellowships are two-year fellowships designed for Harvard graduate students who have completed all departmental requirements for the PhD before the application deadline. Tyler Fellowships are governed by unique terms. You may learn more about the Tyler Fellowship, and its terms, here.

End: November 1, 2018
