Princeton University Hodder Fellow Opportunity

Open to artists demonstrating “much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts” to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the 2018-2019 academic year and receive an $81,000 stipend for the 10-month engagement. Fellows are selected more “for promise than for performance.” Fellowships are for one academic year and provide the opportunity to pursue an independent project. No teaching is required.

Princeton University Arts Fellows (PAF) 
Princeton Arts Fellows, 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. We will be accepting applications in Creative Writing, Dance, Music, Theater, and Visual Arts. Applicants should be early career artists who would find it beneficial to spend two 10-month academic years (2018-2019 and 2019-2020) working in an artistically vibrant university community. 

An $81,000 salary for each year is included. Fellows will be interacting with our students, faculty and staff as part of the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Music. 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, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year. Princeton Arts Fellows may not hold concurrent teaching positions at other institutions for the duration of the fellowship.
