A museum and independent research library located in the heart of New York City, the Morgan Library & Museum began as the personal library of financier, collector, and cultural benefactor Pierpont Morgan. As early as 1890 Morgan had begun to assemble a collection of illuminated, literary, and historical manuscripts, early printed books, and old master drawings and prints.

The Morgan Library offers fellowships for current PhD students and recent postdocs on an annual and bi-annual basis. Past opportunities have included:

  • Belle da Costa Greene Curatorial Fellowships: A two-year curatorial fellowship to be awarded to two promising scholars from communities historically underrepresented in the curatorial and special collections fields.
  • Drawing Institute Predoctoral and Postdoctoral Research Fellowships: Nine month fellowship for research in the history of art, a significant component of which pertains to the history, theory, collecting, function, or interpretation of drawings.
  • Morgan-Menil Fellowship: A three-to-nine month fellowship to support independent projects on some aspect of the history, theory, interpretation, or cultural meaning of drawing throughout the history of art. Preference will be given to projects that would benefit from the resources of the Morgan Library & Museum and the Menil Collection.
