The Amon Carter Museum seeks applications for the 2010 Davidson Family Fellowship. Established in 1997, the fellowship provides support for scholars working toward the Ph.D. or at the postdoctoral level to research topics in the history of American art and culture that relate to objects in the museum's permanent collections. The museum collections cover the period between 1835 to 1950 in painting, sculpture, drawings and prints, photography from its beginnings to the present, and rare books. Proposals from qualified individuals in related disciplines are also welcome.
The deadline for receipt of applications is March 15, 2010. The stipend is $5,000 for a minimum four-week period of full-time research conducted at the museum before September 30, 2010.
More information, including the application form, is available at:
And another award from ARTstor:
We would like to share information about a new ARTstor travel award program with you and your colleagues.
The ARTstor Travel Awards program will provide five research travel awards in the amount of $1,500 each to support educational and scholarly activities. While the digital age is opening up new approaches and techniques for using images of the world's cultural heritage as evidence in teaching and scholarship, there is no substitute for engagement with original works and sites, for research in archives that hold primary source material, or for attending conferences with colleagues engaged with similar issues. In recognition of this need, ARTstor will provide five research travel awards in the amount of $1,500 each (to be used by September 1, 2011) to help support the educational and scholarly activities of graduate students, scholars, curators, educators, and librarians in any field in the arts, architecture, humanities, and social sciences.
To be considered for a research travel award, applicants must create and submit an ARTstor image group (or a series of image groups) and a single accompanying essay that creatively and compellingly demonstrates why the image group(s) is useful for teaching, research, or scholarship. The five winning submissions will be determined by ARTstor staff. These submissions will help ARTstor to understand better the uses that scholars and teachers are making of ARTstor's content and tools and will provide us with insights into how we can continue to improve our efforts to serve the educational community.
