Funding: Marilynn Thoma Fellowship in Spanish Colonial Art

For those working on interactions between Japanese and the Spanish Empire, especially in the field of art history, the Thoma Foundation offers two fellowships: one for short research travel, and one for lengthier fellowship support.

The Marilynn Thoma Fellowship provides unrestricted funding in the amounts of $45,000 for pre-doctoral dissertation research and $60,000 for post-doctoral research, and is the first portable, unrestricted fellowship devoted exclusively to Spanish Colonial art. International scholars are encouraged to apply.

In concert with the new Fellowship, the Thoma Foundation is pleased to announce its inaugural Research and Travel Awards in Spanish Colonial art. Awards of up to $15,000 are available to independent scholars and advanced graduate students completing MA or PhD dissertations to help defray the costs of research-related expenses.

Applications must be submitted by October 15, 2018.

About Travis

I am a scholar of Japanese & Okinawan history with a particular interest in the history of arts and culture, and inter-Asia interactions, in the early modern period. I have been fortunate to enjoy the opportunity to live in Okinawa for six months in 2016-17, and in mainland Japan on multiple occasions, including from Sept 2019 to now.
