CHICAGO, IL.- The Terra Foundation for American Art announced the winners of its 2013 international academic awards and fellowships, including Julia Bailey, a doctoral student at University College London, who received a one-year residential fellowship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, in Washington, D.C.

According to Ms. Bailey, who was awarded a Terra Foundation research travel grant in 2012, “Last year’s travel grant enabled me to fulfill essential research at archives across the United States. The trip consolidated my previous work and also introduced a number of new areas of inquiry, some of which I’ll pursue this year while at the Smithsonian. Overall, I’m grateful to the Terra Foundation for the rewarding and insightful academic experiences they’ve afforded me.”

Other academic awards and fellowships offered by the Terra Foundation include:

· Academic program grants,
· Publication grants,
· An international essay prize,
· Research travel grants to the United States,
· Postdoctoral teaching fellowships in Paris and London,
· Visiting professorships in Paris, London, and Berlin, and
· Terra Summer Residency (TSR) fellowships in Giverny, France,

“Since we began awarding these grants and fellowships in 2006, our aim has

been to foster a growing international community of scholars in the field of American art and connect them to a worldwide network of peers and advisors who will benefit them in their careers for years to come,” explained Amy Zinck, vice president and director of the Terra Foundation for American Art in Europe.

Each year hundreds of applicants vie for the Terra Foundation awards—23 scholars representing nine countries, including China and Israel, applied for the international essay prize alone. Overall, the foundation’s 2013 fellowship and award recipients come from countries such as the Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

David Peters Corbett, professor of Art History and American Studies at the University of East Anglia and a senior advisor at TSR in 2009, stated “The residency in Giverny has been a noteworthy presence in the growth of the field. It continues to generate an exceptional sense of energy and dynamism amongst participants, and it is now both raising the standard and scope of scholarship and increasing collaboration and networking amongst international scholars in the field of American art.”
