CHICAGO, IL.- Today, the Terra Foundation for American Art announced its 2013 fellowship & academic opportunities, including an international essay prize and visiting professorships in Berlin, London, and Paris, which enable scholars from countries across the globe to study the art of the United States. The foundation’s 2012 fellowship and award recipients represent countries such as Australia, China, Mexico, and Poland.

“These fellowships and awards broaden the geographic boundaries of the study of American art and culture, as well as foster a collaborative network of engaged international scholars who will shape the future of American art history for years to come,” said Terra Foundation for American Art President & CEO Elizabeth Glassman.

For example, a Terra Foundation research travel grant enabled Lisa Rossi, a doctoral candidate at the Université Paris Diderot examining historical processes in contemporary photography, to visit and conduct research at the George Eastman House, in Rochester, N.Y.

“The library of George Eastman House contained very helpful resources that dramatically shaped the content of the historic section of my dissertation,” explained Rossi. “The travel grant also allowed me to meet personally with the major actors involved in the movement I’m studying.”

Other opportunities offered by the Terra Foundation include:

• Academic program grants,
• Smithsonian American Art Museum fellowships in Washington, D.C.,
• Terra Summer Residency fellowships in Giverny, France,
• Postdoctoral teaching fellowships, and
• Publication grants.

“These programs help us achieve the objective of bringing American art to the world and the world to American art,” explained Amy Zinck, vice president and director of the Terra Foundation for American Art in Europe. “This year there were 48 applicants from 12 countries for the travel grants alone, and we encourage scholars from around the globe to apply and share this information with colleagues to increase both the number and scope of participants next year.”
