BGC Visiting Fellowship applications for the 2024–25 academic year are now open; applications are due March 1, 2024.

Bard Graduate Center invites scholars from university, museum, and independent backgrounds with a PhD or equivalent professional experience to apply for non-stipendiary visiting fellowships to take place during the 2024–25 academic year. Bard Graduate Center Visiting Fellowships, which are intended for scholars who have already secured means of funding, provide scholars with workspace in the Bard Graduate Center Research Center and enable them to join our dynamic, intellectual, and scholarly community in New York City. Visiting Fellowships represent our commitment to conversation and scholarly communication. We are happy to welcome scholars who similarly seek a serious but informal intellectual environment in which to pursue their work in the decorative arts, design history, and material culture. Visiting Fellowships may be awarded for two months to the full academic year, with a preference for visits between three and six months in duration. We do not reimburse fellows for travel, relocation, housing, or visa-related costs in connection with this fellowship award.
