Fellowships of $81,000 per year USA, Canada, and International early-stage artists who show noteworthy potential in their artistic practice for a two-year teaching position at the university level. Applications will be accepted from artists in the disciplines of creative writing, dance, music, theater, and visual arts.

Applicants should be early career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists. Please note that this list is not meant to be exhaustive; any early-stage artist who would find it beneficial to spend two years working in an artistically vibrant university community may apply.

Fellowships are for two 10-month academic years 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 or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, the expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

Selection will be based on artistic achievement; the potential for excellent teaching; and the likelihood of significant contributions to the artistic life of the Princeton community.
