More Information:


This residential Pre-Doctoral Fellowship is open by application to American and international students whose doctoral research focuses on modern and/or contemporary drawing or adopts a transhistorical approach to the medium. The Menil Drawing Institute’s fellowship program fosters the highest level of scholarship and makes possible rich, interdisciplinary, object-based conversations on the drawing medium’s history, theory, criticism, and practice.
Applications are welcome from American and international researchers pursuing a doctorate in art history whose work pertains to the study of modern and contemporary drawing practices. Applicants must have completed their graduate coursework and passed any required pre-doctoral exams (“orals”) before the term of the fellowship begins, if such requirements exist at their institutions. Applicants’ dissertation topics must be approved by their institutions before the term of the fellowship begins.
Fellows receive a stipend ($3,000 per month) to cover living and other expenses incurred during the 9-month fellowship, lasting from September to June, and they are housed in a fully furnished apartment within a recently refurbished historic bungalow on the Menil campus. They are assigned a workspace at the Menil Drawing Institute to use for the duration of the fellowship and have access to the collections, archives, library, and staff at the Menil.
