Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Dissertation Fellowships in American Art

Deadline: October 26

Fellowship Details

  • Stipend: $3-,000, plus up to $4,000 as a travel allowance
  • Tenure: one year

ACLS invites applications for the Henry Luce Foundation/ACLS Dissertation Fellowships in American Art designated for graduate students in any stage of Ph.D. dissertation research or writing. Ten fellowships are available for a non-renewable, one-year term. The fellowships, however, may not be used to defray tuition costs or be held concurrently with any other major fellowship or grant.

This program is made possible by funding from the Henry Luce Foundation.


Applicants must:

  • be a Ph.D. candidate in a department of art history in the United States. A student with an appropriate project whose degree will be granted by another department is eligible only if the principal dissertation advisor is in a department of art history. (Students preparing theses for the Master of Fine Arts degree are not eligible.)
  • have a dissertation focused on a topic in the history of the visual arts of the United States. Although the topic may be historically and/or theoretically grounded, attention to the art object and/or image should be foremost. Projects must be object-oriented and use art-historical or visual studies approaches; proposals whose emphases are predominantly socio-historical will not be considered.
  • have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. except the dissertation before beginning fellowship tenure.
  • have not previously applied for this fellowship more than once.
  • be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
