Bard Graduate Center (BGC) Visiting fellowships

Bard Graduate Center (BGC) Visiting fellowships

Bard Graduate Center invites scholars from university, museum, and independent backgrounds with a PhD or equivalent professional experience, to apply for non-stipendiary visiting fellowships, to be held during the 2022–23 academic year. 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 join our dynamic intellectual and scholarly community in New York City. Visiting Fellowships represent our commitment to conversation and scholarly communication. We are happy to welcome scholars who similarly seek a serious but informal intellectual environment in which to pursue their work in the decorative arts, design history, and material culture. Visiting Fellowships may be awarded for anywhere from one month to the full academic year.
