Clark Fellowship Program
The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is one of a small number of institutions in the United States that combines a public art museum with a complex of research and academic programs, including a major art history library.
The Clark functions as an international center in both the academic and museum fields for research and discussion on the nature of art and its history.
The Clark offers between fifteen and twenty Clark Fellowships each year, ranging in duration from six weeks to ten months.
National and international scholars, critics, and museum professionals are welcome to propose projects that extend and enhance the understanding of the visual arts and their role in culture.
Stipends are dependent on salary and sabbatical replacement needs. Housing in the Institute’s Scholars’ Residence, located across the street from the Clark, is also provided.
