International students from all over the world are eligible for the Clark Fellowship if they plan to conduct postdoctoral research at The Clark Art Institute USA during the 2023–2024 academic year.
Each year, Clark offers between eleven and sixteen scholarships, the majority of which are given out for a single academic semester and range in length from one to ten months.
Scholars, critics, curators, and museum professionals from all around the world are encouraged to suggest initiatives that deepen and improve our understanding of the visual arts and its significance to culture.
The Institute combines a public art gallery with a complex array of academic and research initiatives, as well as a sizeable art history library. An international hub for discussion of the origins and nature of art is Clark.
