CIS offers two annual summer fellowships for graduate students of history, material culture, and art history. For five weeks, fellows travel around the Gulf South with the CIS coordinator/research curator, documenting historic decorative arts. Fellows receive a $2000 stipend, housing and transportation during the field survey, and reimbursement for travel expenses to New Orleans. THNOC also provides a scholarship to its New Orleans Antiques Forum, which concludes the annual survey activities. 

This year's fellowships have been awarded. Field work will take place from June 28-August 6, 2017.
