The New York Public Library is inviting applications for its 2020-21 Cullman Center Fellowship.
Offered through the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers, fellowships will be awarded to fifteen scholars and writers — academics, independent scholars, journalists, creative writers (novelists, playwrights, poets), translators, and visual artists — whose work could benefit directly from access to the research collections at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street. The library is one of the world’s preeminent resources for study in anthropology, art, geography, history, languages and literature, philosophy, politics, popular culture, psychology, religion, sociology, sports, and urban studies.
Through the program, fellows will receive a stipend of up to $75,000, the use of an office with a computer, and full access to the library’s physical and electronic resources. Fellows work at the center for the duration of the fellowship term, which runs from September through May, and will give a talk over lunch on his or her current work-in-progress to other fellows and a wide range of invited guests; they may also be asked to take part in other programs at the New York Public Library. Fellowship awardees will need to work primarily at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building rather than at other divisions of the Library.
Those seeking funding for research leading directly to a degree are not eligible for this program.
See the New York Public Library website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
