Through its Lewis Center for the Arts academic unit, the Princeton University is offering the opportunity to creative people, including but not only, writers, composers, choreographers, visual artists, performance artists to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the 2013-2014 academic year.
Successful applicants for the Hodder Fellowship, will have shown exceptional promise and "much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts"; they will be selected more "for promise than for performance."
The 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.
Hodder Fellows spend an academic year at Princeton, but no formal teaching is involved. Fellowships cannot fund work leading to the Ph.D.
A 68,000 USD 10-month stipend will be provided.
Applicants should label each item submitted on-line and/or via mail with their name and genre (ex: writer/fiction, writer/playwright, visual artist, choreographer etc.). As always, read the submission instructions carefully and according to your field, to avoid disapointment.
The submission deadline is November 1, 2012.
You need not be a U.S. citizen to apply and there's no age limit (according to information provided on the phone).
