Princeton University Fellowships in the Creative and Performing Arts
Call for Applications
Princeton Fellowships in the Creative and Performing Arts, funded in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, 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 early-career poets, novelists, composers, visual artists, conductors, musicians, choreographers, playwrights, designers, graphic novelists, filmmakers, performers, directors, and performance artists, etc., who would find it beneficial to spend two years working in an artistically vibrant university community.
Fellowships are for two 10-month academic years. Fellows will be in residence for academic years 2013–2014 and 2014–2015 at Princeton, interacting with students, faculty and staff as part of the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Music. 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, conducting a student music ensemble, or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, the expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year. This Fellowship cannot be used to fund work leading to a Ph.D. or any other advanced degree.
Application deadline is 15 February 2013.
