Marilynn Thoma Fellowship In Art of the Spanish Americas and Research and Travel Awards In Art of the Spanish Americas

Thoma Foundation


Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #205194

Grant Description

Fellowships of $45,000 and $60,000 and grants of up to $25,000 to USA, Canada, and International scholars for projects and research related to the art of the Spanish Americas. Funding is intended to further an understanding of the art and history of the Spanish Americas and for travel to conduct research on the topic.

Marilynn Thoma Fellowship In Art of the Spanish Americas:

The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation offers predoctoral and postdoctoral fellowships annually in support of projects and research initiatives that will advance study of the art of the Spanish Americas. The Marilynn Thoma Fellowship is the only unrestricted research funding in the United States devoted exclusively to the field of art of the Spanish Americas. Scholars may come from any discipline, but all projects must relate to the study of art and art history.

Applicants should propose projects that exhibit original scholarship and/or will make a significant contribution to the understanding of the art of the Spanish Americas 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. Projects will be considered from all of Spanish colonial Latin America and the Caribbean; however, the Foundation will give strong preference to projects that make specific contributions to the history of painting and sculpture in viceregal South America. 

Thoma Foundation Research & Travel Awards In Art of the Spanish Americas:

Congruent with the Marilynn Thoma Fellowship, the Foundation offers annual grants to scholars, curators, art historians, and advanced graduate students working on MA theses or PhD dissertations in support of projects and research initiatives that will advance the field of the art of the Spanish Americas. These grants are meant to help defray the costs of research-related expenses.

Fellowships and Travel Awards are portable and funds may be used in any reasonable way the applicant sees fit to accomplish the project, including travel and accommodation, photography/digital images, access and research fees, tuition remission, supportive staffing, and scientific analysis. Funds may only be used for the expenses of the grant recipient and research assistants (not family or companions).
