Abstract

DFA offers direct support to individual artists who have developed a sustained and intentional practice of working through dance and movement-based modalities to address social change.

Art for social change intentionally affects and respectfully engages communities and audiences. Creating social change must be integral to the ideas, beliefs, and goals that are woven throughout an artist’s process of creating and sharing the art. Art for social change is art with a vision and an intentional analysis. It is an artistic or creative cultural practice that may operate in traditional or nontraditional forms or settings. Art with this vision impacts people and communities in many ways. It can:

  • Create space for expression and build a sense of community
  • Preserve or reclaim traditional cultural practices
  • Alter or question how we think about ourselves, our society, or our culture
  • Create a vision of a more just world
  • Be a tool or strategy for organizing and movement building
  • Challenge racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, ageism, ableism, or other oppressions
  • Question dominant culture beliefs
  • Shift or transform the perception of power and/or privilege and the dynamics associated with justice, equity, and/or accountability

Eligibility

As an applicant, you must:

  • Have dedicated your practice to directly and meaningfully addressing the needs of one or more community(s).
  • Have respectful, ethical, and committed relationships with the communities with which your work is in dialogue
  • Have an artistic practice in dance and/or movement-based modalities.
  • Have not received major six-figure funding, such as MacArthur Foundation “Genius” awards and Doris Duke Artist Awards.
  • Be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident.

Abstract

The Hodder Fellowship will be given to artists and writers of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the academic year. Potential Hodder Fellows are composers, choreographers, performance artists, visual artists, writers, translators, or other kinds of artists or humanists who have “much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts”; they are selected more “for promise than for performance.” Given the strength of the applicant pool, most successful Fellows have published a 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.

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. The department is committed to fostering an academic environment that acknowledges and encourages diversity and differences. The successful candidate will pursue academic excellence in diverse, multicultural, and inclusive settings. One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply.

Holders of a Ph.D. degree from Princeton University are not eligible. This fellowship cannot be used to fund work leading to a Ph.D. or any other advanced degree.

Abstract

This Fellowship supports artists who embrace their roles as part of a larger community of artists and citizens, and consciously work with a sense of service, whether aesthetic, social or both. Support is directed to artists who are at an early point in their careers in creating such work, generally in their 2nd–10th year as a generative artist

Available fields:

  • Dance
  • Media (including Film/Video and New Media)
  • Literature
  • Music
  • Theater/Performance Art/Spoken Word
  • Visual Arts
  • Technology Centered Arts
  • Combined Artistic Fields

Eligibility

Eligible Artists are:

  • Residents of either Minnesota or the 5 boroughs of New York City who have been residents for at least one year at time of application
  • Generative artists who are currently creating new original work
    • Generative artists conceive and create new original work (e.g., choreographers,composers, playwrights and devisers, filmmakers, poets, writers of fiction or creative non-fiction, visual artists, etc.). Jerome does not fund artists who have solely performed or developed/produced the work of others (e.g., dancers, musicians, actors, editors,designers,journalists, etc.). Artists have demonstrated the ability to conceive and create new original work and their primary future career goals are to continue as generative artists.
    • New original work has been created and developed by the artist from concept to completion and is not a remount, revival, or interpretation of previously existing material.
  • Early career artists with at least 2 years but not more than 10 years of professional generative artistic practice in any field
    • Early career: In general, early career artists are typically in their 2nd to 10th year of generative creative practice, excluding any time spent in a degree-granting program (if applicable). Individuals who are at the very beginning of their careers and who do not have the required completed and presented works are not eligible to apply. The Foundation considers the sum of an artist’s generative career experience in the evaluation of the 2–10 year timeframe.
  • Generative artists who have two or more completed and presented works (outside of work created in a degree-granting program). These works must have been produced or presented/published/exhibited/screened by an independent organization or producer (not self-presented).
  • Not enrolled as a full-time student in a degree-granting education program at the time of application or during the fellowship period.
    • The Jerome Foundation defines “full-time student” in terms of enrollment/matriculation status, not contact hours, so low-residency MFA students are not eligible to apply.
    • Artists who have completed all but their dissertation for a PhD program, who are generating new work(s) and who meet all other eligibility criteria should contact Jerome staff to discuss eligibility.
  • Not a tenured faculty member (or the equivalent)
  • Not an applicant on more than one application
  • Not previously a recipient of a Jerome Hill Artist Fellowship
  • Artists who have received significant awards and prizes for multiple projects/works in any field may also be considered too established or recognized to be considered early career and qualify for support in this Fellowship.

Age and formal training in a degree program are not factors in determining eligibility.

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.
