Princeton Arts Fellowship For Early Career Artists

Composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, poets, and other artists are invited to join Princeton University on a two-year fellowship. Participants will receive an annual stipend of $86,000 and teach and work in an artistically vibrant university community. The deadline is on Tuesday 14th September 2021.

Princeton Arts Fellowships, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, David E. Kelley Society of Fellows in the Arts, and the Maurice R. Greenberg Scholarship Fund, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognised as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching.

Princeton Arts Fellows spend two consecutive academic years 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.

An $86,000 a year stipend is provided. Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree. Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

The deadline is on Tuesday 14th September 2021.
