Winterthur welcomes researchers. Academic, independent, and museum scholars, as well as advanced graduate students are invited to apply for short and long-term residential research fellowships. Research fellows conduct research in many areas of social and cultural history, including material culture, architecture, decorative arts, design, consumer culture, garden and landscape studies, Shaker studies, travel and tourism, the Atlantic World, and objects in literature. Winterthur’s collections are rich and diverse, and we welcome applications that offer fresh approaches to our resources.
All applicants are strongly encouraged to search Wintercat, visit Winterthur, and contact staff members to discuss potential research projects. The suitability of a project to Winterthur’s collections is the primary consideration of the fellowship award committee.
