Fellowship Opportunities


The Metropolitan Museum of Art welcomes applications from scholars of art history, archaeology, conservation and related sciences, as well as from scholars in other disciplines whose projects are interdisciplinary in nature and relate to objects in The Met’s collection. The tremendous diversity of fellows' projects reflects the historic and geographic diversity of the Museum's collection. The community of fellows becomes immersed in the intellectual life of the Museum and takes part in a robust program of colloquia, roundtable seminars, research-sharing workshops, behind-the-scenes tours of exhibitions, conversations with Museum staff, and visits to the curatorial and conservation departments. Fellows form long-lasting professional relationships as they discuss research questions, look closely at objects, and share the experience of living in New York City.

Applications are open now for 2018–2019 Fellowships. Please visit for more information.
