Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International individuals to study, write, and work in a library in New York. This program is open to scholars, academics, translators, writers, and visual artists. The goal of this fellowship is to promote dynamic conversations about scholarship and literature.

The Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers is an international fellowship program open to people whose work will benefit directly from access to the collections at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building—including academics, independent scholars, and creative writers (novelists, playwrights, poets). Visual artists at work on a book project are also welcome to apply. In addition to working on their own projects, the Fellows engage in an ongoing exchange of ideas within the Center and in public forums throughout the Library.

The Center awards fellowships to outstanding academics, creative writers, and independent scholars whose work requires a period of sustained, intense immersion in the collections of one of the world’s great research libraries, as well as time away from their normal duties. It provides Fellows with resources to pursue the solitary work of study and writing, while at the same time creating a vibrant intellectual community rich in cross-disciplinary exchange. Moreover, crucial collaboration takes place between Center Fellows and the Library’s staff. Individual curators and research librarians help guide Fellows to materials they might not otherwise find, and the questions Fellows pursue often lead to new discoveries by Library staff members as well as to enhanced collection development.

Behind the founding of the Center lies the conviction that first-rate scholarly and literary work will enrich the lives of individuals across a wide social and cultural spectrum. Through the impressive and growing list of books published by Fellows based on their time at the Library, and through diverse public programs, the Center actively promotes The New York Public Library’s larger mission of advancing knowledge, curiosity, and access to its superb collections.

Number of Grants:

The Center appoints 15 Fellows a year.

Estimated Size of Grant:

A Cullman Center Fellow receives a stipend of up to $75,000, the use of an office with a computer, and full access to the Library’s physical and electronic resources.

Term of Contract:

The Center appoints Fellows for a nine-month term at the Library, from September through May.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Cullman Center’s Selection Committee awards fifteen Fellowships a year to outstanding scholars and writers—academics, independent scholars, journalists, creative writers (novelists, playwrights, poets), translators, and visual artists. Foreign nationals conversant in English are welcome to apply. Candidates for the Fellowship will need to work primarily at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building rather than at other divisions of the Library.

Fellows from all over the United States and abroad work at the Center. The Selection Committee looks for diversity in gender, race, and age, seeking talented young writers and scholars as well as those with established reputations. The principal criteria for acceptance are the excellence of the applicant’s previous work and the significance of the new project’s need for sustained access to The New York Public Library’s Humanities and Social Sciences research collections.

People seeking funding for research leading directly to a degree are not eligible.

Pre-Application Information:

The application is now open for the 2023-2024 Cullman Center Fellowship. The deadline to apply is 5PM EDT Friday, September 30, 2022.
