CA+E Research Fellows
The Center for Art + Environment (CA+E) at the Nevada Museum of Art annually names a limited number of research fellows for two-year appointments. The fellowships are not open for application, but are awarded by the Center in recognition of existing or proposed projects that can contribute unique and new understanding of how humans creatively interact with their natural, built, and virtual environments.
