Andy Warhol Foundation Curatorial Research Fellowships in Contemporary Art

Launched in 2008, this program aims to encourage curatorial research leading to new scholarship in the field of contemporary art. Grants of up to $50,000 are designed to support travel, archival research, convening of colleagues, interviews and time to write.

Scholarly research undertaken in the field of contemporary art is funded through Curatorial Research Fellowships. Institutionally-affiliated curators at any stage of their careers are eligible to apply and must have the formal support of their director. It is assumed that research will lead to a significant exhibition, though this is not a requirement. Grants to curators do not preclude separate proposals from sponsoring institutions in any given grant round.

The Foundation's grant program is primarily focused on supporting institutions within the United States. However, in rare cases, we will make grants outside the United States. For this reason, we accept letters of inquiry from arts institutions abroad. Please include a brief description of the organization and of the project for which you are seeking funding. In limited cases, the Foundation will then request a full proposal.

The postmark deadlines for proposals are March 1 with notification on July 1 and September 1 with notification on January 1.
