Hodder Fellows spend an academic year at Princeton, but no formal teaching is involved. A $68,000 stipend is provided. Fellowships cannot fund work leading to the Ph.D.
Fellows in the Creative and Performing Arts: A $75,000 salary is provided.
Hodder Fellowship: One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply. Given the strength of the applicant pool, most successful Fellows have published a first book or have similar achievements in their own fields; the Hodder is designed to provide Fellows with the "studious leisure" to undertake significant new work. Find out how to apply on Princeton's website.
FCPA: All applicants must submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a statement of 500-750 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 recommenders. Additionnally, you will have to provide work samples (read more about the application material and how to apply here.)
The Lewis Center for the Arts will allow Princeton to fully engage with a range of programs that integrate the creative and performing arts into a broad liberal arts education. The Center will give a new focus and force to the Programs in Creative Writing, Dance, Theater, and Visual Arts, as well as to Film and Video, Musical Theater and to the Princeton Atelier. It will also have close links to the Center for African American Studies, School of Architecture, Department of Art and Archaeology, Council of the Humanities, Department of Comparative Literature, Department of English, Department of Music, Princeton University Art Museum and the McCarter Theatre Center.
Hodder Fellowship: The Hodder Fellowship will be given to writers and other artists of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during one academic year. Hodder Fellows may be writers, composers, choreographers, visual artists, performance artists, 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."
Princeton Fellowships in the Creative and Performing Arts, funded in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching. Applicants should be early career poets, novelists, composers, visual artists, conductors, musicians, choreographers, playwrights, designers, graphic novelists, film makers, performers, directors, and performance artists -- this list is not meant to be exhaustive -- who would find it beneficial to spend two years working in an artistically vibrant university community.
Fellowships are for two academic years. Fellows will teach a course each semester or, in lieu of one course, may be requested to undertake an artistic assignment.
While Fellows need not reside in Princeton, they will be required to spend a significant part of the week on campus.
