The Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University is accepting applications for its 2017-19 Princeton Arts Fellowships.
Fellowships will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching. Applicants should be an early-career poet, novelist, choreographer, playwright, designer, performer, director, filmmaker, composer, or performance artist who would find it beneficial to spend two years teaching and working in an artistically vibrant university community.
Fellows spend two consecutive academic years (September 1-July 1) at Princeton University and formal teaching while in residence is expected. The normal work assignment will be to teach a course each semester, but fellows may be asked to take on an artistic assignment in lieu of a class, such as directing a play or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, the expectation is that fellows will be full and active members of the academic community and committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.
An $81,000 a year stipend is provided through the program. Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree.
Non-U.S. citizens are welcome to apply. Holders of a PhD from Princeton are not eligible to apply.
