Abstract

The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers, and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident, and who lack the resources to meet that situation. Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need.

The program does not consider requests for dental work, chronic situations, capital improvements, or projects of any kind; nor can it consider situations resulting from general indebtedness or lack of employment.

Applicants should be aware that this is a grant program, and that each application is considered on its merits within the criteria of the program. While we attempt to provide assistance to as many applicants as we can, the filing of an application is not, nor should it be perceived as, a guarantee of funding.

Eligibility

To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Situations with imminent deadlines will receive priority.

Abstract

In cooperation with the Henry Luce Foundation, ACLS has embarked on a three-year bridging initiative to reassess and reconfigure the Luce/ACLS Program in China Studies. We will convene scholars at all ranks, higher education leaders, journalists, and other readers of research and writing on China to re-imagine and transform our program to meet the needs of China studies in the 21st century.

Fellowships in 2021-22 will support research, writing, and curriculum development. An intensive retreat on the future of the field, on progress of fellowship projects, and on their curricular implications will be held in June 2022.

Short-term research fellowships will enable recent PhDs (without tenure and within eight years of the PhD), and with heavy teaching and service responsibilities, to carry out projects in research and writing. These flexible, short-term awards may be used for access to online archives, travel, conference participation, childcare or other familial responsibilities, as well as other needs identified in the application essay for accomplishing the proposed objectives. Fellows will be asked to share the planned impact of their projects for curriculum development at the June 2022 retreat, whose purpose is to build teacher-scholar cohorts in China studies.

Long-term research fellowships will enable recent PhDs (without tenure and within eight years of the PhD) to take leaves from university responsibilities for four to eight months to carry out projects in research and writing. During the fellowship tenure, which must consist of consecutive semesters or quarters, Fellows must be on leave from teaching and service. No employment is allowed, so that full time may be devoted to the project. Fellows will be asked to share the planned impact of their projects for curriculum development at the June 2022 retreat, whose purpose is to build teacher-scholar cohorts in China studies.

Eligibility

  1. An applicant must hold a PhD from an institution in the United States or Canada, OR be a US or Canadian citizen/permanent resident with a PhD from any institution. The PhD degree must be completed by November 1, 2021. If the degree is not completed by the deadline, please see the FAQs.

Abstract

Thematic Prompt: Sink or Swim Climate Futures
As a public park and outdoor venue Socrates is an art space particularly attuned to the effects of climate change. Applicants to the 2022 Socrates Annual Fellowship and exhibition program are encouraged to submit proposals based on the prompt *Sink or Swim with the goal of presenting a public artwork for a fall of 2022 group exhibition.

This year, Socrates asks artists to consider the present day ecological conditions and challenges that our globe faces. Just this August, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reported that 1.5 degrees C global temperature within the next 20 years is unavoidable, but there is a window of opportunity for global action to slow the current warming trend and consequential environmental destruction. We are at once on the tipping point of irreparable ecological devastation and at the dawn of a new age of Green politics and technologies. Reduction of future emissions paired with technologies for carbon sinking [*pulling CO2 out of the atmosphere and trapping it in rock or water] may temper the warming phenomena. Or, the rising temperatures may further melt our glaciers, increasing ocean levels, leaving coastal cities under water. In this scenario, sinking is preferable to swimming.

While a global phenomenon, climate change does not impact all equally. The costs are greater borne on disadvantaged groups with less political power—those in developing countries, women, the young, the elderly, racial and ethnic minorities, and those without access to capital.

How can we address the urgency, enormity, and challenges of climate change without falling into melancholy or paralysis? How do the matrices of race, gender, and class intersect in this Green future? What can we do to mitigate eco-anxiety surrounding these many simultaneous demands for global change? What can we learn from historically vulnerable, but thriving communities that can help us navigate this challenge?

Eligibility

Fellowships are awarded to artists whose careers and artistic practices would benefit from the opportunity. Artists who have applied before (but never shown at Socrates before) are eligible. Artists who have previously participated in the Fellowship and those enrolled in a school, college, or university during the fellowship period are NOT eligible.

Abstract

The Arts Writers grant supports both emerging and established writers who are writing about contemporary visual art. There are three categories—articles, books, and short-form writing—these grants support projects addressing both general and specialized art audiences, from short reviews for magazines and newspapers to indepth scholarly studies. We also support art writing that engages criticism through interdisciplinary methods or experiments with literary styles. As long as a writer meets the eligibility and publishing requirements, they can apply.

By “contemporary visual art,” we mean visual art made since World War II. Projects on post-WWII work in adjacent fields—architecture, dance, film, media, music, performance, sound, etc.—will only be considered if they directly and significantly engage the discourses and concerns of contemporary visual art.

Eligibility

To be eligible for this grant, an arts writer must be

  • an individual;

  • applying for a project about contemporary visual art;
  • an art historian, artist, critic, curator, journalist, or a writer in an outside field who is strongly engaged with the contemporary visual arts;
  • a US citizen, permanent resident of the United States, or a holder of an O-1 visa (if your application advances to the final round, you will need to submit current documentation);
  • at least twenty-five years old;
  • a published author (specific publication requirements vary for each project type)

Abstract

Princeton Arts Fellowships, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, David E. Kelley Society of Fellows in the Arts, and the Maurice R. Greenberg Scholarship Fund, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching.

Princeton Arts Fellows spend two consecutive academic years (September 1-July 1) at Princeton University and formal teaching is expected. 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.

Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree.

Eligibility

Applicants should be early career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists–this list is not meant to be exhaustive–who would find it beneficial to spend two years teaching and working in an artistically vibrant university community.

One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply. Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

Applicants can only apply for the Princeton Arts Fellowship twice in a lifetime.

  • Theodore Rousseau Fellowships support 12 months of travel abroad to conduct research related to paintings collections in Europe.
  • Slifka Foundation Interdisciplinary Fellowships combine art historical research with training in the technical investigation of the collections. Applicants must apply to work on a specific project sponsored by the Museum.

Eligibility

Predoctoral fellowships are available to those applicants who are working on their PhD at the time that they submit their application. Senior fellowships are available to those who hold a PhD on the date of application and/or are well-established scholars.

Requirements vary depending on the fellowship.
