The Cecilia Steinfeldt Fellowship for Research in the Arts and Material Culture is given annually for the best research proposal on decorative and fine arts, material culture, preservation, and architecture in Texas from the seventeenth century to the present. The award will be announced at the Association's Annual Meeting in March 2020. Judges may withhold the award at their discretion.

The application, which should be no longer than two pages, should specify the purpose of the research, the need for the money, and a description of the end product (article, book, or exhibition).

Individuals wishing to apply should submit an application form (and attach the proposal and a curriculum vita) by October 15, 2020. Only electronic copies submitted by the deadline will be considered.

The Cecilia Steinfeldt Fellowship was established in 1996 to honor Cecilia Steinfeldt, the longtime curator of the Witte Museum of San Antonio, in recognition of her lifelong scholarly devotion to the arts in Texas.
