Hodder Fellowship at Princeton University in USA
Princeton University calls application for Hodder Fellowship in the Lewis Center in the United States of America.
The Lewis Center is designed to put the creative and performing arts at the heart of the Princeton experience. This mission is based on the conviction that exposure to the arts helps each of us to make sense of our lives and the lives of our neighbors. We pursue this mission by bringing together a vibrantly diverse community of people with different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, skills, and talents.
The Hodder Fellowship will be given to artists of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the 2021-2022 academic year. Potential Hodder Fellows are composers, choreographers, performance artists, visual artists, writers or other kinds of artists or humanists who are selected more “for promise than for performance” and have “much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts” as traditionally defined. Given the strength of the applicant pool, most successful Fellows have published the 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.
An $84,000 stipend is provided for this 10-month appointment as a Visiting Fellow. Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree.
Applicants must submit a resume, a project proposal of 500 words, and examples of ten minutes of performance through link(s) to sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Flicker, etc. Visual artists should provide up to 20 still images organized into a single PDF file and submit them as part of their online application. Composers may send 1-2 scores as a PDF file and submit as part of their online application and/or supply a link to a website.
