Smithsonian Organization and Audience Research (SOAR) offers unpaid fellowships to Ph.D. candidates, post-doctoral researchers, and staff from external organizations. SOAR fellows conduct independent research projects under the sponsorship of a SOAR staff member. We have hosted fellows from all around the world who are conducting cutting-edge research on all aspects of museums, as well as on cultural heritage management and operations.
Fellowships with SOAR are arranged on a case-by-case basis. For more information, contact Whitney Watriss, SOAR Director (email).
