Anne Ray Fellowship

One nine-month residential fellowship is available for a Native scholar with a Master’s or PhD in the arts, humanities, or social sciences to work on their own writing or curatorial research project. This may include research and writing for a future exhibition at an arts or cultural institution. In addition, the fellow will provide mentorship to the two Anne Ray interns working at the Indian Arts Research Center and help guide their intellectual development while facilitating their engagement with other scholars on the SAR campus. Fellows receive a $40,000 stipend in addition to housing and office space on the SAR campus. This fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the Anne Ray Charitable Trust.
