The Princeton Arts Fellowship program is accepting applications for awards to early career artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching. Composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors, and performance artists (list not meant to be exhaustive) are eligible to apply. Fellows will spend two consecutive academic years (September 1 – July 1) at Princeton and are expected to teach one course per semester while working in Princeton’s artistically vibrant university community.
Fellows will receive an $81,000 stipend and cannot use the stipend to fund work leading to an advanced degree. Applicants do not have to be U.S. citizens to apply and holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.
Applicants should submit a resume or curriculum vitae, a personal statement (500 words max) describing how you would hope to use the two years of the fellowship at this moment in your career, and contact information for three references. Additionally, work samples are requested and can be submitted online.
Applications for 2019-21 Princeton Arts Fellowships will be accepted beginning July 1, 2018. The deadline for this application cycle will be Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
