HAA announces Hot Metal Bridge Fellowship for 2022–23

The Department of History of Art and Architecture recruit its fifth Hot Metal Bridge Fellow for the academic year 2022–23.

This 1-year, fully funded post-baccalaureate fellowship program is designed to help talented students from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in art history, including first-generation graduate students and those from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds, to bridge the gap between an undergraduate degree and a graduate program. Program eligibility is limited to US citizens or permanent residents. Fellows enjoy financial support (including tuition and stipend) and mentoring by both faculty and graduate students as they prepare themselves for a successful program of doctoral studies. This is a great opportunity for recent college graduates, those who seek to change careers, and other applicants who have completed an undergraduate degree and are highly motivated and show strong academic promise, but are not quite ready to apply to a doctoral program in their field of interest.

In the History of Art and Architecture (HAA) Department, Hot Metal Bridge Fellows enroll in graduate seminars, take part in our research constellations, and are integrated into other aspects of university life alongside other graduate students, while also receiving personalized mentoring on their applications to PhD programs.

The deadline for admission in Fall 2021 is Tuesday, March 1, 2022.
