The Hodder Fellowship will be given to artists of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the 2021–22 academic year. Potential Hodder Fellows are composers, choreographers, performance artists, visual artists, writers or other kinds of artists or humanists who are selected more "for promise than for performance" and have "much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts" as traditionally defined. 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.

Hodder Fellows spend an academic year at Princeton, but no formal teaching is involved. An 84,000 USD stipend is provided for this 10-month appointment as a Visiting Fellow. Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree. US citizenship not required to apply.

The Lewis Center 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.

Applications must be submitted by September 15, 2020, 5pm ETD here and refer to Requisition D-20-LCA-00009.

Writers: Please submit a resume, a 3,000-word writing sample of recent work, and a project proposal of 500 words.

Composers, Performing Artists, and Visual Artists: Please submit a resume, a project proposal of 500 words, and examples of ten minutes of performance through link(s) to sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, Flicker, etc. Visual artists should provide up to 20 still images organized into a single PDF file and submit as part of their online application.
