The Lewis Center is designed to put the creative and performing arts at the heart of the Princeton experience. This mission is based on the conviction that exposure to the arts helps each of us to make sense of our lives and the lives of our neighbors. We pursue this mission by bringing together a vibrantly diverse community of people with different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, skills and talents.

The Hodder Fellowship will be given to artists of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the 2022–23 academic year. Potential Hodder Fellows are composers, choreographers, performance artists, visual artists, translators, 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 86,000 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.

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.
