NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

While in residence, scholars have access to the Center’s rich holdings of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, rare books, and manuscripts, as well as primary and secondary reference materials. Scholars are also able to take advantage of the extensive collections at other Yale museums and libraries.
