The deadline to apply for the 2020-2021 Marilynn Thoma Fellowship and the Thoma Foundation Research and Travel Awards is Friday, October 25, 2019.

Pre- and post-doctoral fellowships are offered annually to scholars in support of projects and research initiatives that will advance the field of Spanish colonial art. Applicants should propose projects that exhibit original scholarship and/or will make a significant contribution to the understanding of colonial Spanish American art and its history. Fellowships range in duration from one to two years, and eventuate in major measurable outcomes, including museum exhibitions, dissertations, book publications, scholarly essays, and lecture series.

Congruent with the Marilynn Thoma Fellowship, the Thoma Foundation offers annual grants to scholars, curators, art historians, and advanced graduate students in support of projects and research initiatives that will advance the field of colonial art of Spanish America. These grants are meant to help defray the costs of research-related expenses and have been expanded to include projects up to six months in length for the 2020-2021 year.
