Mellon Faculty Stipends

The Museum's Mellon Fund for Faculty Innovation provides grants for innovative courses that use the Art Museum’s collections or exhibitions in a significant way. Through the generosity of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, support is provided in the form of a one-time summer stipend of $10,000 to allow faculty to spend a substantial portion of the summer researching the objects they plan to include in their course. Smaller grants of $1,000 are also available for the development of smaller-scale engagements (e.g. course modules, class assignments, or other curricular projects) that are structured around the collections. Princeton faculty members from all departments and programs are encouraged to apply. Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis.

Download the application instructions or for more information, please e-mail Johanna (Jody) Seasonwein, Andrew W. Mellon Curatorial Fellow for Academic Programs, at or call (609) 258-7136.
