One-year part-time fellowship. The term of the award will begin in September 2021 and conclude in May 2022.
The Frick Collection and Frick Art Reference Library is pleased to announce the availability of a one-year part-time fellowship for an outstanding graduate student in art history, the digital humanities, computer science and/or information science. The successful candidate will complete a digital project (preferably Open Access) of their own design that utilizes the rich digital resources of the Library, especially The Frick Digital Collections, the institution’s online archive, and its Art History Research Databases. Ideally, this project would support research for the fellow’s master’s thesis or dissertation; however, projects for course credit and independent initiatives will also be considered. During the tenure of the fellowship, which will be held remotely, the fellow will also be closely involved in all activities and public programming sponsored by the institution’s Digital Art History Lab. At the conclusion of the fellowship, the Fellow will be required to present their project in an online public event scheduled for May 2022.
Qualifications and Application Process
Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited graduate program in the United States or Canada. The Fellow will receive a one-time stipend of $15,000. The Fellow will be considered a part-time employee for the duration of their fellowship. The term of the award will begin in September 2021 and conclude in May 2022.
