The Lewis Center for the Arts, in collaboration with other University departments, offers two artist fellowship opportunities. Both are designed to support artists, in all artistic disciplines, who demonstrate great promise.

Hodder Fellowship

The Hodder Fellowship will be given to artists of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the 2020-2021 academic year. Hodder Fellows spend an academic year at Princeton, but no formal teaching is involved. An $83,000 stipend is provided for this 10-month appointment as a Visiting Fellow. Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree. U.S. citizenship is not required to apply.

Princeton Arts Fellows

Funded in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, David E. Kelley ’79 Society of Fellows Fund, and the Maurice R. Greenberg Scholarship Fund. Open to early career artists in theater, dance, music, creative writing and visual arts demonstrating extraordinary promise. Fellows will spend the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years at Princeton, teaching and engaging with the university’s lively arts community. Funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, fellowships are for two 9-month academic years. An $83,000 salary for each year is included. For more information, guidelines and online application visit:

Princeton Arts Fellows may not hold concurrent teaching positions at other institutions for the duration of the fellowship.

This Fellowship cannot be used to fund work leading to a Ph.D. or any other advanced degree. Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

All applicants must submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of 500 words about how you would hope to use the two years of the fellowship at this moment in your career, and contact information for three references (please do not ask recommenders to send letters; the search committee will contact relevant recommenders directly). In addition, work samples should be submitted online (i.e., a writing sample, images of your work, video links to performances, etc.).

Application Deadline for Both Fellowships: September 17, 2019, 5:00 PM EST
