At its May 4, 2014, meeting, the Board of Directors agreed to suspend the Professional-Development Fellowships in Art History and Visual Arts until a thorough analysis of the program and an exploration into other professional-development opportunities take place. When CAA’s newly approved Strategic Plan 2015–2020 begins on July 1, 2014, the board will, among the plan’s priorities, investigate the full range of possibilities that might best serve the professional-development needs of CAA’s membership.
The board hopes to reinstate the fellowships by May 2015 or to design another program to help professionals in the visual arts and art history.
Candidacy for the fellowship is by nomination only. Each September, doctoral art history programs throughout the country are invited to nominate one candidate. Candidates should have completed all of their coursework, and be focused primarily on researching and writing their dissertation. Nominees need not be U.S. citizens.
Once nominations are submitted via the Foundation’s online form, nominees
will receive application guidelines from us via e-mail. Nominees are asked to submit
a description of their dissertation, a biographical statement, a curriculum vitae, and email addresses for two referees.
Inquiries may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
