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.

Abstract

Music has the ability to inspire, to bring joy to those who hear it and those who create it. It can convey great emotion in just a few powerful notes. There is, perhaps, no greater expression of the human spirit. For this reason, the Grawemeyer Award in Music Composition honors those who bring beauty and inspiration into the world.

Eligibility

The University of Louisville offers an international prize in recognition of outstanding achievement by a living composer in a large musical genre: choral, orchestral, chamber, electronic, song-cycle, dance, opera, musical theater, extended solo work and more. The award will be granted for a work premiered during the five-year period prior to the award deadline (i.e. time period Jan. 1, 2017 - Dec. 31, 2021 for the 2023 award).

Abstract

Over three decades, the program has distributed 1,400+ grants to thousands of performing artists who have offered extraordinary ideas, not simply to position themselves within a creative marketplace, but for reasons of participating in their communities’ vitality, across the United States and its territories. MAP grantees are at the forefront of re-imagining inherited models of artistic production, cultural paradigms, and related economic practices. Our seed investment is transformational in helping artists test their bold ideas and attract resources to further actualize their long-term ambitions.

Eligibility

Artists on the project team do not need to be US citizens, but the project must take place in the United States (or its territories) and the grant custodian must be US-based.

Abstract

Fellowships are available annually for post-doctoral research in any aspect of the Italian Renaissance, broadly understood historically to include the period from the 14th to the 17th century and geographically to include transnational dialogues between Italy and other cultures (e.g. Latin American, Mediterranean, African, Asian etc.).

Subjects covered include art and architecture, history, literature, material culture, music and performance, philosophy, religion, and science. Scholars can also apply to work on the transmission and circulation of ideas, objects, and people during the Renaissance, into and beyond the Italian peninsula, or on the historiography of the Italian Renaissance, including the rebirth of interest in the Renaissance in later periods.

One of the I Tatti fellowships, sponsored by a generous grant from the Florence Gould Foundation, is designated for scholars who a) work on a Franco-Italian Renaissance topic (which includes any project exploring the contact between the geographic areas of Italy and France in the early modern period); b) reside in France; or c) have French citizenship. Candidates who fall into one or more of these categories should indicate their status in the penultimate section on the application form.

I Tatti offers Fellows the precious time they need to pursue their studies with a minimum of obligations and interruptions together with a maximum of scholarly resources--a combination that distinguishes the Harvard Center from similar institutions. Fellows have full access to the Berenson Library's rich collections of books and periodicals, photographs and digital images, manuscripts and recordings. As one of the over seventy libraries that make up the Harvard Library system, the Biblioteca Berenson provides access to a vast range of online journals and other electronic resources, and offers Fellows comprehensive interdisciplinary resources for the study of late medieval and early modern Italy.

I Tatti is a site for lively academic encounters and dynamic exchanges. Each year, a number of activities such as exploratory seminars, workshops, and tours of exhibitions and cultural institutions are organized for the Fellows. In addition, the center hosts conferences, lectures, and concerts and attendance is expected of all Appointees. Rather than present a traditional paper at the end of the year, Fellows give presentations of their fellowship projects in-progress in September. This provides an opportunity to explore problems and questions and receive valuable feedback early in the fellowship year from other members of the multidisciplinary community.

Eligibility

Fellows are selected by an international and interdisciplinary committee that welcomes applications from scholars from all nations.

At the time of application, scholars must hold a PhD, dottorato di ricerca, or an equivalent degree and will be asked to upload a scan of the certificate. They must be conversant in either English or Italian and able to understand both languages. They should be in the early stages of their career, having received a PhD between January 1, 2011 – September 1, 2021, and have a solid background in Italian Renaissance studies. Candidates may not be working on a second PhD at the time of application. In the event that a candidate holds two doctoral degrees, the eligibility dates (PhD certificate dated between January 1, 2011 – September 1, 2021, inclusive) apply to the more recent degree.

Scholars can apply for only one type of I Tatti fellowship per academic year.
