The Davidson Family Fellowship was established in 1996 by a generous gift from the Davidson Family Charitable Foundation. It provides support for scholars holding a PhD (or equivalent) or for PhD candidates to work on research projects that advance scholarship on American art by connecting with objects in the Carter’s collection. During their stay, all fellows are expected to actively participate in the scholarly life of the Museum, and at the end of their appointment they are asked to present research progress in the form of a lecture or roundtable discussion.

Funding: $3,000 per month, from a minimum one-month to a maximum four-month period of full-time research at the Museum. Housing and travel expenses are to be managed and funded by the fellow, although the Museum is available for assistance in locating accommodations.

Application Deadline: June 1, 2023, for a fellowship to begin on or after October 1, 2023, and end by September 30, 2024. Housing and travel expenses are to be managed and funded by the fellow. If you have questions, please email us.
