At the institutions where they are invited to teach and guest lecture, Fulbright scholars will provide a variety of perspectives on American art that we hope will inspire an expansion of interest among university administrators, faculty and students, and help to build institutional capacity for curriculum and research mentoring on American art history. Courses and methodology introduced by Fulbright U.S. scholars will contribute a new awareness of American art to the next generation of art history teachers and scholars.
The Fulbright-Terra Foundation Award in the History of American Art offers two grants per year at any university in a European Union country (except France, Germany, and the UK, where the Foundation already has established teaching fellowships). The grants are for undergraduate and/or graduate teaching in history of American art prior to 1980 and for research. Scholars will be expected to aid host institutions in developing, modeling and adapting American art history curriculum. They can also give seminars, workshops, and public lecturers, as well as advise graduate students on theses. The award is for early career scholars up to the Associate Professor level, for one semester grants starting fall 2015. A letter of invitation from a prospective host institution is required with the application.
