The Princeton Arts Fellowships are awarded to artists whose achievements are recognised as showing astonishing promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching. Applicants should be early-career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists who would find it beneficial to spend two years teaching and working in an artistically vibrant university community.
Princeton Arts Fellows will spend two consecutive academic years (September 1-July 1) at Princeton University and formal teaching is expected. Although the teaching load is light, the expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of the art community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.
With an $84,000 a year stipend provided during the period, Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree and one need not be a U.S. citizen to apply. Holders of PhD degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.
How to Apply
- All applicants must submit a resume or curriculum vitae
- A personal statement of 500 words about how you would hope to use the two years of the fellowship at this moment in your career.
- Contact information for three references. In addition, work samples are requested to be submitted online (i.e., writing sample, images of your work, video links to performances, etc.)
Visit the Princeton Arts Fellowships website to apply. Applicants can only apply for the Fellowship twice in a lifetime.
