The High Museum of Art, Emory University’s art history department, and the Michael C. Carlos Museum, supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, are proud to offer the Mellon Object-Centered Curatorial Research Fellowship Program. Launched in 2012, the program offers Emory art history doctoral candidates the opportunity to pursue object-based curatorial study under the direction of a collaborative team of curators, scholars, and conservators from the partnering institutions. Each year, up to three students are selected to receive a one-year fellowship plus a full stipend for research and travel in the United States and abroad. Each student is assigned a curatorial mentor to oversee an object-based research project in collaboration with a corresponding faculty adviser. The fellowship culminates with a scholarly paper on the primary object, which is published as part of a digital publication series.
