Big Ten Academic Alliance and the Smithsonian Institution Fellowship Opportunity

The Big Ten Academic Alliance and the Smithsonian Institution will offer a joint fellowship program.  This is the sixth year of the competition.  Applications are due 11:59 pm EST on December 1, 2016.


The award provides one-year pre-doctoral fellowships to support research in residence at Smithsonian Institution facilities in association with members of its research staff.  To be eligible to apply, students must have completed all course work for their programs, and must have been admitted into doctoral candidacy and satisfied all requirements except completion of the dissertation.


All fields of study that are actively pursued by the museums and research organizations of the Smithsonian Institution are eligible.  The online guide, ­Smithsonian Opportunities for Research and Study (, outlines Smithsonian research activities and lists the research staff.  Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact staff members to discuss their proposed research and its feasibility at the Smithsonian.
