Forsyth Visiting Grad Student Fellowship

NOTE: New Application Deadline! The Department of History of Art at the University of Michigan is pleased to announce that applications for the Forsyth Visiting Graduate Student Fellowship are now open for the 2024-25 Academic Year.

One of the three largest departments of art history in North America with specialists covering every major continent, Michigan has ranked among the top art history doctoral programs nationally. The department traces its origins to 1910, and has been home to some of the most distinguished scholars in the field. In keeping with this long tradition, we encourage interdisciplinary work to take advantage of the University’s great strengths across fields, including anthropology, archaeology, philosophy, film studies, women’s studies, area studies, and law.  


One of the department's core goals is to partner with other programs at Michigan and beyond. These partnerships bring History of Art into conversation with other disciplines and enrich our commitment to interdisciplinary study, at the same time fortifying our connection to the University of Michigan community.
