Emory, High Museum get grant for PhDs | News
ATLANTA -- Atlanta's High Museum of Art and Emory University's department of art history have received a grant to help support art history doctoral candidates.
The grant from the Mellon Foundation focuses on object-centered curatorial training and is set to provide funding to support two candidates for a three-year program.
A committee of art history faculty and representatives from the museum will select two students each year. One will serve during the spring semester and summer term, and the other during the summer term and fall semester. Selected students will receive a fellowship plus a full stipend for summer research and travel in the U.S. and abroad.
Ashley Laverock, who studies French Medieval art, and Cecily Boles, who studies Italian Baroque art and art theory, are to be the first two fellows.
