2022-2023 Fellowships at The Metropolitan Museum of
The Metropolitan Museum of Art welcomes applications from
scholars of the history of art and visual culture, archaeology,
conservation and related sciences, as well as those in other
disciplines whose projects relate to objects in The Met’s
collection. Each year, The Met creates a closely knit
community of scholars whose individual interests collectively
illuminate the Museum's collection of artworks spanning 5,000 years
of human creativity. The community of fellows becomes immersed in
the intellectual life of the Museum and takes part in a robust
program of colloquia, roundtable seminars, research-sharing
workshops, behind-the-scenes tours of exhibitions, conversations
with Museum staff, and visits to curatorial and conservation
departments. Fellows form long-lasting professional relationships
as they discuss research questions, look closely at objects, and
share the experience of living in New York City.
Deadlines for all application materials (including letters of
recommendation) are listed below.

Fellowship Program page for more information. Questions
