CIC Smithsonian Institution Fellowship

Modified: September 12, 2014

The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) and the Smithsonian Institution (SI) invite fellowship applications for one-year fellowships to support research in residence at Smithsonian Institution facilities. Fellowships carry a stipend of $30,000.  All fields of study that are actively pursued by the museums and research organizations of the Smithsonian Institution are eligible. 

How it Works

Under this fellowship program, the Smithsonian Institution and the Fellow’s university share the cost of support. Students enrolled at CIC member universities apply directly via the Smithsonian’s Online Application System (SOLAA). The Smithsonian Institution will review applications and award up to seven (7) CIC Fellowships to eligible applicants from CIC institutions. 

All unfunded applications will be eligible for consideration in the general Smithsonian Institution competition.  Review of applications for the general competition begins on January 15, 2015.


Students must have completed all course work for their programs, and must have been admitted into doctoral candidacy and satisfied all requirements except completion of the dissertation in order to qualify. Only students enrolled at CIC institutions are eligible to apply.


The stipend is $30,000 for one year, and fellows are eligible for tuition and health insurance benefits in accordance with their university policy. Fellows are eligible to receive allowances for related expenses and for temporary relocation to the Smithsonian.

Application Instructions

The application materials must be submitted electronically between September 2, 2014 and December 1, 2014 at 5 PM through https://solaa.si.edu/solaa/SOLAAHome.html
