The Lewis Center for the Arts, in collaboration with other University departments, offers two artist fellowship opportunities. Both are designed to support artists, in all artistic disciplines, who demonstrate great promise.
The current application cycle closed on September 14, 2021. The next application cycle will begin on July 1, 2022.
Princeton Arts Fellowship
Funded in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, David E. Kelley ’79 Society of Fellows Fund, and the Maurice R. Greenberg Scholarship Fund.
Open to early-career artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise. Princeton Arts Fellows spend two consecutive academic years (September 1-July 1) at Princeton University and formal teaching is expected. The normal work assignment will be to teach one course each semester subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, 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, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.
The Mary Mackall Gwinn Hodder Fellowship program is funded by the Charles John Morris Gwinn and Alfred Hodder Memorial Fund.
Open to artists demonstrating “much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts.” Fellows are selected more “for promise than for performance.” Fellowships are for one academic year and provide the opportunity to pursue an independent project. No teaching is required. A stipend is provided.
Princeton University posts public health information on COVID-19, updated as circumstances and policies change.
