The Huntington Library awards over 150 research fellowships annually.
Recipients of all fellowships are expected to be in continuous residence at The Huntington and to participate in, and make a contribution to, its intellectual life. Long-Term Fellows are expected to present at a two-day introductory symposium in September and to participate in weekly working group sessions from October–May.
The Huntington is a collections-based research institute, which promotes humanities scholarship on the basis of its library holdings and art collections. The Art Collections feature European and American art spanning more than 500 years, with diverse strengths ranging from Renaissance Italian bronzes to British Grand Manner portrait paintings to early American folk art to twentieth-century drawings, prints, and photography. The Library holds more than eleven million items that span the 11th to 21st centuries. Its diverse materials center on 14 intersecting collection strengths.
In addition to reinterpreting the well-known highlights of our collections, thereby connecting them with new and broader audiences, we aim to inspire future generations of scholars and artists by providing greater access to all of our collections.
