DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 25, 2020 ― The Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers is calling for applications for its 2021-2022 International Fellowship.
The organisation offers fellowships to people whose work will benefit directly from access to the research collections at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Library Building.
Renowned for the extraordinary comprehensiveness of its collections, the Library is one of the world’s preeminent resources for study in anthropology, art, geography, history, languages and literature, philosophy, politics, popular culture, psychology, religion, sociology, sports, and urban studies.
The fellowship is opened to outstanding scholars and writers—academics, independent scholars, journalists, creative writers (novelists, playwrights, poets), translators, and visual artists. Foreign nationals conversant in English are also eligible.
Candidates for the Fellowship will need to work primarily at the Stephen A Schwarzman Building rather than at other divisions of the Library.
However, people seeking funding for research leading directly to a degree are not eligible.
- Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $75,000, the use of an office with a computer, and full access to the Library’s physical and electronic resources.
- Fellows will work at the centre for the duration of the Fellowship term, which runs from September through May.
- Each Fellow will give a talk over lunch on his or her current work-in-progress to the other Fellows and to a wide range of invited guests and may be asked to take part in other programs at The New York Public Library.
