Fellowships and Grants
Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection is an institute in Washington, D.C., administered by the Trustees for Harvard University. It supports research and learning internationally in Byzantine, Garden and Landscape, and Pre-Columbian studies through fellowships, internships, meetings, and exhibitions.
Dumbarton Oaks offers residential fellowships in three areas of study: Byzantine studies (including related aspects of late Roman, early Christian, Western medieval, Slavic, and Near Eastern studies), Pre-Columbian studies (of Mexico, Central America, and Andean South America), and Garden and Landscape studies.
Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection offers One-Month Research Awards to scholars holding the PhD or other relevant terminal degree (e.g., MLArch for Garden and Landscape studies applicants) and working on research projects in Byzantine, Pre-Columbian, or Garden and Landscape studies.
Dumbarton Oaks makes a limited number of grants to assist with scholarly projects in Byzantine, Pre-Columbian, and Garden and Landscape studies. Support is generally for archeological investigation, as well as for the recovery, recording, and analysis of materials that would otherwise be lost.
Dumbarton Oaks offers a limited number of Short-Term Pre-Doctoral Residencies for advanced graduate students who are preparing for their PhD general exams, writing their doctoral dissertations, or expecting relevant final degrees in the field of Byzantine, Pre-Columbian, or Garden and Landscape studies.
