Pre-Columbian Studies Fellows and Visiting Scholars
The Fellowship program in Pre-Columbian Studies at Dumbarton Oaks encompasses research developed out of archaeological, art historical, and ethno-historical approaches to the Pre-Columbian past in Mesoamerica, Central America, and the Andes. Dumbarton Oaks offers residential fellowships in Pre-Columbian studies for the academic year, a single term, and for the summer term. Fellowships are for scholars who hold a doctorate or appropriate final degree or have established themselves in their field and wish to pursue their own research; Junior Fellowships are for degree candidates who at the time of application have fulfilled all preliminary requirements for a PhD or appropriate final degree and will be working on their written dissertation at Dumbarton Oaks under the direction of a faculty member at their own university.
Lists of current and former Fellows, Junior Fellows, and Visiting Scholars and their research topics are available by year in the left-hand menu. For information about applying for a fellowship or short-term residency, see here.
