Welcome to the Grant Opportunity Center
Located on Chicago's beautiful lakefront Museum Campus, The Field Museum continues to be one of the finest natural history museums in the world. With our extraordinary collections, world-class research, and premier exhibitions and educational programs, we are setting the pace for museums in the 21st century.

The Field Museum recognizes the need to support basic research on our collections by interested students and scholars throughout the world. To this end, the Museum offers a modest number of grants and fellowships to visiting scientists and students for research and training on our scientific and library collections. Grants are open on a competitive basis to all individuals in the national and international scholarly community working on problems related to natural history.
