Short-Term Visiting Academic Research Fellowships

Jay and Deborah Last Fellowships

The Jay and Deborah Last Fellowships in American Visual Culture are for research on American art, visual culture, or other projects that will make substantial use of graphic materials as primary sources.


These fellowships are for research on American graphic material of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries or for projects using visual arts as primary documents for projects in American history and culture through 1876.

Jay and Deborah Last Fellows are selected on the basis of the applicant's scholarly qualifications, the scholarly significance or importance of the project, and the appropriateness of the proposed study to the Society's collections.
