(CLOSED) Call for Applications from Foreign Nationals

2013-2014 Writers’ Fellowships at Cullman Center, NY
(up to $65,000 stipend | international)

Deadline: 28 September 2012

(Note: Foreign nationals  conversant in English are welcome to apply for fellowships at the  Cullman Center. The Cullman Center’s Selection Committee awards up to 15  fellowships a year to outstanding scholars and writers – academics,  independent scholars, journalists, and creative writers.)

The  Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers offers  fellowships to people whose work will benefit directly from access to  the research collections at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at Fifth  Avenue and 42nd Street (formerly the Humanities and Social Sciences  Library). Renowned for the extraordinary comprehensiveness of its  collections, 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, and sports.

Criteria and Terms

The Cullman  Center’s Selection Committee awards up to 15 fellowships a year to  outstanding scholars and writers – academics, independent scholars,  journalists, and creative writers. Foreign nationals conversant in  English are welcome to apply. Candidates who need to work primarily in  The New York Public Library’s other research libraries – The New York  Public Library for the Performing Arts, the Schomburg Center for  Research in Black Culture, and the Science, Industry and Business  Library – are not eligible for this fellowship, nor are people seeking  funding for research leading directly to a degree.

The Cullman  Center looks for top-quality writing from academics as well as from  creative writers and independent scholars. It aims to promote dynamic  communication about literature and scholarship at the very highest level  – within the Center, in public forums throughout the Library, and in  the Fellows’ published work.

A Cullman Center Fellow receives a  stipend of up to $65,000, an office, 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. Each Fellow gives a talk over lunch on current  work-in-progress to the other Fellows and to a wide range of invited  guests, and may be asked to take part in other programs at The New York  Public Library.
