From the Clark:

Clark Fellowships
Applications due by 15 October 2012

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute combines a public art museum with a complex of research and academic programs, including a major art history library. The Clark is an international center for discussion on the nature of art and its history.

The Clark offers between fifteen and twenty Clark Fellowships each year, ranging in duration from six weeks to ten months. National and international scholars, critics, and museum professionals are welcome to propose projects that extend and enhance the understanding of the visual arts and their role in culture. Stipends are dependent on salary and sabbatical replacement needs. Housing in the Institute’s Scholars’ Residence, located across the street from the Clark, is also provided. Fellows are furnished with offices in the library, which contains a collection of 200,000 books and 700 periodicals. The Institute’s collections, its library, visual resources collection, and the Fellows’ program are housed together with the Williams College Graduate Program in the History of Art. The Clark is within walking distance of Williams College, its libraries, and its art museum. The Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) is a ten-minute drive away.

Candidates must already have a Ph.D. or equivalent professional experience. The Clark does not award pre-doctoral fellowships, and given the intense competition for fellowships, we do not normally make awards to those who have received their Ph.D. within the last four years.

A number of special fellowships are also offered, as seen here»
