Department of Art History dissertation fellowships support two Ph.D. candidates in art history every fall and spring semester. These fellowships are intended for doctoral students who are A.B.D. (“all but dissertation”) and are working full-time on researching and/or writing their dissertations. The funds are to support normal living expenses and can also be used for research expenses. During the period of the fellowship, the student does not need to be in residence at University Park. A dissertation fellowship is at least $11,000 for a single semester or $22,000 for both fall and spring semesters. Every spring semester, the department head will make a call for applications for the coming academic year.
