The Center's Scholars' Program encompasses both short and long-term fellowships. Through its fellowships, the Center provides support for both pre-doctoral and post-doctoral research. Fellowship proposals may address wide-ranging aspects of the history of collecting in the United States from Colonial times to the present as well as in Europe. Proposals may focus on individual collectors, dealers, developments, or trends in the art market. Interdisciplinary research is especially encouraged.

For the Summer/Fall 2020 term, one semester-long Leon Levy Fellowship will be awarded to scholars engaged on a major project.

Please note that in Summer/Fall 2020, subject to public approvals relating to a building renovation project, we may be temporarily relocating to the Breuer building on Madison Avenue during the Fellowship period.

Application forms for Summer/Fall 2020 Leon Levy Fellowship must be e-mailed no later than February 10, 2020.
