Conservation Fellowships and Scientific Research Fellowships 2022-2023

There are two types of Conservation and Scientific Research Fellowships: junior and senior. Junior fellows work closely with Met staff to receive training in scientific research and conservation practices. Senior fellows work on a specific research project that makes use of the Museum's collection and/or resources.

Recent master's graduates, PhD candidates, postdoctoral scholars, and senior scientists and researchers are eligible to apply. We encourage applications from those with a background in, but not limited to, conservation, conservation science, chemistry/physical chemistry, botany, and earth sciences/geology.

The fellowship period is September 1 through August 31. All fellows must be in residence at The Met for the entire fellowship period. Junior fellows receive a stipend of $42,000. Senior fellows receive a stipend of $52,000. All fellows also receive an additional $6,000 for travel.
