Arts Fellowship

This fellowship has been established to provide a platform for a resident artist/scholar to work together with a small group of George Washington faculty (Incubator studio fellows) and students, as well as other members of the Washington, DC arts community. A primary goal of this fellowship is to foster an interdisciplinary approach to creative research and scholarship over an intensive six-month period, a physical and intellectual space for the development of meaningful artistic and scholarly linkages across the arts and other disciplines, both on and off campus. The final result of the collaboration between the resident artist/scholar fellow and the Incubator studio fellows may result in a single project in which all fellows contribute equally or independent projects that have been developed through an ongoing intellectual exchange.


The fellow will not be assigned to teach any courses; instead, he/she will be expected to produce new work and/or scholarship, present at least one public lecture, regularly interact with graduate and undergraduate students, and fully participate in activities with GW faculty in the Incubator studio fellowship program.
