The Newberry Library's long-standing fellowship program provides outstanding scholars with the time, space, and community required to pursue innovative and ground-breaking scholarship. In addition to the Library's collections, fellows are supported by a collegial interdisciplinary community of researchers, curators, and librarians. An array of scholarly and public programs also contributes to an engaging intellectual environment.
John Cabot University is pleased to announce the inauguration of its new Master of Arts in Art History in Fall semester 2017. Accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the degree is the first US-accredited MA in the history of art based entirely in Rome. The program can be completed in approximately fifteen months of full-time study.
Designed to immerse students in the wealth of art, architecture, and art-historical documentation available in Rome and in Italy, the curriculum has a dual emphasis: the visual cultures of Rome and the Mediterranean across time; and the acquisition of technical skills for conducting art-historical research directly from the primary record. For further information about the faculty, curriculum, and application requirements, please see this page.
HECKMAN RESEARCH STIPENDS
The Hill Museum & Manuscript Library
Saint John’s University
Collegeville, Minnesota 56321
Heckman Stipends, made possible by the A.A. Heckman Endowed Fund, are awarded semi-annually. Up to 10 stipends in amounts up to $2,000 are available each year. Funds may be applied toward travel to and from Collegeville, housing and meals at Saint John’s University, and costs related to duplication of HMML’s microfilm or digital resources. The Stipend may be supplemented by other sources of funding but may not be held simultaneously with another HMML Stipend or Fellowship. Holders of the Stipend must wait at least two years before applying again.
The program is specifically intended to help scholars who have not yet established themselves professionally and whose research cannot progress satisfactorily without consulting materials to be found in the collections of the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library.
