Scholarship Description

Research Fellowships are available to Byzantine, Pre-Columbian, and Garden and Landscape scholars with a terminal degree (Fellowships) or degree candidates who have fulfilled all preliminary requirements for a terminal degree (Junior Fellowships), and awarded for an academic year or semester. Junior Fellowship applicants only must upload their graduate record transcripts to the application portal. Three letters of recommendation are required for all applicants. Recipients are expected to be in residence at Dumbarton Oaks and to devote full time to their study projects without undertaking any other major activities. Support includes a stipend of $21,000 for a Junior Fellow or $35,000 for a Fellow for the full academic year. Fellowships are prorated for appointments shorter than the full academic year. Fellows may hold other grants with the knowledge and permission of both the grantors and Dumbarton Oaks. For non-US citizens, Dumbarton Oaks provides J-1 visas for the term of the Fellowship appointment, as part of our U.S. Department of State-designated Exchange Visitor Program. Please be advised that scholars who have been in the United States with J status within the past 12 months may not qualify for a Dumbarton Oaks J-1 visa unless they were in the United States for a total time of less than six months. These individuals and all other non-US citizens are strongly urged to check their prospective visa status for the requested period of the Fellowship prior to submitting an application.
