Bard Graduate Center invites scholars from university, museum, and independent backgrounds with a Ph.D. or equivalent professional experience to apply for funded research fellowships. The theme for the 2017–18 academic year period is “What is distance?” Bard Graduate Center Visiting Fellowships, which are intended for scholars who have already secured means of funding, provide scholars with workspace in the Bard Graduate Center Research Center and enable them to be a part of the dynamic scholarly community in New York. Fellows will get $3,500 per month stipend and housing.
The mission of Bard Graduate Center is to be the leading institute for the study of decorative arts, design history, and material culture through graduate training, exhibitions, and research.
