Princeton Arts Fellows, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching.

Applicants should be early career composers, conductors, musicians, choreographers, visual artists, filmmakers, poets, novelists, playwrights, designers, directors and performance artists who would find it beneficial to spend two years working in an artistically vibrant university community.

Fellowships are for two 9-month academic years. An 83,000 USD salary for each year is included. Fellows will be in residence for academic years 2020–21 and 2021–22 at Princeton, interacting with our students, faculty and staff as part of the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Music. 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.

Princeton Arts Fellows may not hold concurrent teaching positions at other institutions for the duration of the fellowship and cannot be used to fund work leading to a Ph.D. or any other advanced degree. Holders of Ph.D. degrees from Princeton are not eligible to apply.

All applicants must submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of 500 words about how you would hope to use the two years of the fellowship at this moment in your career, and contact information for three references (please do not ask recommenders to send letters; the search committee will contact relevant recommenders directly). In addition, work samples should be submitted online (i.e., a writing sample, images of your work, video links to performances, etc.).
