The Smithsonian Art Museum and its Renwick Gallery invite applications for 2023–2024 research fellowships in the art, craft, and visual culture of the United States. Fellowships are residential and support full-time independent research. Recipients will be part of the oldest, largest, and premier fellowship program in American art. SAAM is home to one of the largest and most inclusive collections of American art in the world. Its holdings include over 45,000 works in various media by more than 13,000 artists from the colonial period to today. Contemporary American craft and decorative art are featured in the Renwick Gallery, a branch of the museum near the White House.
SAAM hosts a number of fellows each year through the Smithsonian Institution Fellowship Program (SIFP), and also awards its own named fellowships to candidates from this general pool. The deadline for applications is November 1, 2022. Residencies are available at the graduate, doctoral, postdoctoral, and senior levels.
