Danielle Abdon earned her Ph.D. in art history at Temple University (2020) and her B.A. in art history at Rollins College (2012). During her graduate work, she was awarded several competitive fellowships from the Bibliotheca Hertziana—Max Planck Institute for Art History, the Countway Library of Medicine at Harvard University, the Huntington Library, the John Carter Brown Library at Brown University, and the Society of Architectural Historians. She also has experience on the other end of fellowship awards, working as a graduate intern at the Getty Foundation and serving as a reviewer for the Boren, CBYX, and CLS programs. 

Danielle strives to make the fellowship application process inclusive and is committed to consistently diversifying the pool of applicants for competitive opportunities.

Prior to joining Oberlin, she led the fellowships office at Rollins College.
