The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) and the Smithsonian Institution invite applications for one-year fellowships to support research in residence at Smithsonian Institution facilities. ABD (by start of fellowship) doctoral candidates in all fields of study that are actively pursued by the museums and research organizations of the Smithsonian Institution are eligible. The stipend is $30,000 for one year, and fellows are eligible for tuition and health insurance benefits in accordance with University policy. Fellows are eligible to receive allowances for related expenses and for temporary relocation to the Smithsonian.
The publication Smithsonian Opportunities for Research and Study outlines Smithsonian research activities and lists research staff. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact staff members to help identify potential advisors, determine the feasibility of the proposed research being conducted at the Smithsonian Institution, and the availability of relevant resources such as staff, collections, archives and library materials during the proposed tenure dates.
