Dumbarton Oaks One-Month Research Awards

The Dumbarton Oaks is calling applications for the One-Month Research Awards Program. Either U.S. and Non-U.S. citizens are welcome to apply. Preference will be given to those live 75 or more miles from Washington, D.C. The deadline is 1 October and 1 March every year.

Program Description
Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection offers One-Month Research Awards of $3,000 to scholars holding the PhD or other relevant terminal degree (e.g., MLA for Garden and Landscape studies applicants) and working on research projects in Byzantine studies, Pre-Columbian studies, Garden and Landscape studies, or related fields. The awards were established to make the intellectual community as well as the library, rare book, garden, and museum resources of Dumbarton Oaks more widely available to a broader range of scholars for shorter terms and with some flexibility in starting dates. Awards are intended especially for those who might not be able to avail themselves of a longer-term fellowship at Dumbarton Oaks, or scholars in related disciplines who seek greater exposure to our fields of study.

Award Value
Awards are distributed either by stipend check or in the form of a travel reimbursement (upon submission of receipts), neither to exceed $3,000 (USD).

Level and Area of Studies
Non-degree program in Garden and Landscape studies, or related fields.

Place of Study
In the United States of America.

Applicants who live 75 or more miles from Washington, D.C., will receive preference. Individuals currently affiliated with Dumbarton Oaks are not eligible for the award. Recipients may not combine (or take in immediate succession) these awards with summer or academic year fellowships at Dumbarton Oaks. Recipients of prior fellowships or awards from Dumbarton Oaks are requested to wait two years before making another application for a one-month research award.
