Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International artists in various disciplines to pursue projects or teach at a university in New Jersey. Funding is intended for applicants who show noteworthy potential in their artistic practice. Applications will be accepted from artists in the disciplines of writing, dance, music, theater, design, and visual arts.

Two fellowships are offered - Both are designed to support artists, in all artistic disciplines, who demonstrate great promise.

Princeton Arts Fellowships will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching. Princeton Arts Fellows spend two consecutive academic years (September 1 - July 1) 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. Although the teaching load is light, the expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of the community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

The Hodder Fellowship will be given to artists and writers of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the academic year. The Hodder is designed to provide Fellows with the “studious leisure” to undertake significant new work. Hodder Fellows spend an academic year at Princeton, but no formal teaching is involved. The Lewis Center is committed to fostering an academic environment that acknowledges and encourages diversity and differences. The successful candidate will pursue academic excellence in diverse, multicultural, and inclusive settings.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Princeton Arts Fellowships:
- Applicants should be artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary 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–this list is not meant to be exhaustive—who would find it beneficial to spend two years teaching and working in an artistically vibrant university community.
- One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply.
- Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree.
- Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.
- Princeton Arts Fellows may not hold concurrent teaching positions at other institutions for the duration of the fellowship. Princeton Arts Fellows can do one-off events, such as giving lectures, readings, or talks, performing in a show, presenting a film screening, or teaching master classes or workshops.

The Hodder Fellowship:
- Potential Hodder Fellows are composers, choreographers, performance artists, visual artists, writers, translators, or other kinds of artists or humanists who have “much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts”; they are selected more “for promise than for performance.” Given the strength of the applicant pool, most successful Fellows have published a first book or have similar achievements in their own fields;
- One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply.
- This fellowship cannot be used to fund work leading to a Ph.D. or any other advanced degree.
