About The Met/ Fellowships/ Current and Former Fellows

Current and Former Fellows

Leaders, innovators, teachers. The Met Fellowship program has nurtured over 1,400 individuals since 1951. Alumni of the program have become professors, curators, conservators, educators, deans, directors, and leaders in their fields. Their research has embraced the breadth of The Met collection: over 5,000 years of art from around the world and presented for everyone to enjoy.

Learn more about the work of some of our fellows in the current issue of The Met Fellowship Program Newsletter.

Explore the geographic reach of the fellows' research as well as the Museum's international relationships in The Met Around the World.
