Leonard A. Lauder Fellowships in Cubism Studies at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Founded in the spring of 2013, The Leonard A. Lauder Research Center for Modern Art is a leading center for scholarship on modern art with a focus on Cubism and aims, through its various programs, to make critical contributions to the study of 20th-century art.
Each year, The Metropolitan Museum of Art offers two fellowships in the Research Center to scholars studying Cubism or a related subject in modern art. One position is intended for a predoctoral candidate who is embarking on his or her dissertation; the other fellowship is reserved for a qualified postdoctoral scholar at any stage of his or her career. All Leonard A. Lauder Fellows are expected to contribute to the activities and programming of the Leonard A. Lauder Research Center for Modern Art.
All Leonard A. Lauder Fellows must be in residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art during the fellowship period.
Predoctoral fellowships are for two years and must take place between September 1, 2018, and August 31, 2020.
Postdoctoral fellowships may be one or two years in duration and must take place between September 1, 2018, and (depending on the length of the fellowship) August 31, 2019, or August 31, 2020.
The stipend amount for one year is $45,000 for predoctoral fellows and $55,000 for postdoctoral fellows.
During the fellowship period and at the Museum's discretion, Leonard A. Lauder Fellows will be eligible to receive one or more travel stipends.
