The Hodder Fellowship at Princeton University
The Hodder Fellowship will be given to writers and other artists of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the 2013–2014 academic year. Hodder Fellows may be writers, composers, choreographers, visual artists, performance artists, or other kinds of artists or humanists who have "much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts"; they are selected more "for promise than for performance". Given the strength of the applicant pool, most successful Fellows have published a first book or have similar achievements in their own fields. The Hodder is designed to provide Fellows with the "studious leisure" to undertake significant new work. Hodder Fellows spend an academic year at Princeton, but no formal teaching is involved. One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply.
Writers: Submit a resume, a 3000-word writing sample of recent work, and a project proposal of 500 to 750 words.
Performing and Visual Artists: Submit a resume, a DVD of ten minutes of performance and/or 20 still images, and a project proposal of 500 to 750 words.
Application deadline is 1 November 2012.
