Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute / Deadline: October 15 / Application fee : none
The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute combines a public art museum with a complex of research and academic programs, including a major art history library. Scholars may propose topics that relate to the visual arts, their history, practice, theory, or interpretation. Any proposal that contributes to understanding the nature of artistic activity and the intellectual, social, and cultural worlds with which it is connected will be welcome.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. or demonstrate equivalent professional experience. They may come from the academic or museum worlds, or from other professional backgrounds, and may be residents of any country. They may be employed, full- or part-time, or be independent historians, curators, and/or critics.
Stipends are dependent on salary and sabbatical replacement needs. Housing in the Institute's Scholars' Residence is provided. Fellowships will be awarded on a scale related to need and earnings, up to a maximum rate of $60,000 per year. Summer Fellows will be given an apartment and transportation reimbursement, but no stipend. Travel to and from the Clark will also be reimbursed for the scholar and an accompanying family member. Clark Fellows’ tax liability to the United States government will be considered in accordance with the tax regulations of the Internal Revenue Service on a case-by-case basis.
