The Morgan Drawing Institute and the Menil Drawing Institute, Houston, award one research fellowship of three to nine months 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 in New York and the Menil Collection in Houston.
A stipend and travel funding is provided. Fellows are responsible for finding their own housing, but will receive a one-time payment of $1500 that may be used for relocation expenses.
The Morgan-Menil Fellow is expected to spend part of the fellowship period in residence at the Morgan Library & Museum and another part at the Menil Collection. The majority of the Fellow’s time will be spent on the research project for which the fellowship is awarded, but the Fellow is expected to participate fully in the intellectual life of the Morgan and the Menil and to attend Drawing Institute programs during their tenure at each institution. The Fellow will make a presentation on their research during the time of the fellowship at both institutions.
This biennial fellowship is offered every other year. Applications open typically in winter for a start date in September. Successful applicants will be notified around March.
