The Princeton Arts Fellowship program is accepting applications for awards supporting promising early career artists and allowing them to be in residence at Princeton University for years. Applicants who are early career 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 spend your two years at Princeton, and contact information for three references. Additionally, work samples are requested and can be submitted online.
The deadline to submit applications is Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at 11:59 PM EST.
