Dorothy & Lewis B. Cullman Center International Fellowship 2021-2022 for Scholars & 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.
Visual artists at work on a book project are also welcome to apply. The Center appoints 15 Fellows a year for a nine-month term at the Library, from September through May. In addition to working on their own projects, the Fellows engage in an ongoing exchange of ideas within the Center and in public forums throughout the Library.
Renowned for the extraordinary comprehensiveness of their 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, sports, and urban studies.
- Open to outstanding scholars and writers-academics, independent scholars, journalists, creative writers (novelists, playwrights, poets), translators, and visual artists.
- Foreign nationals conversant in English are welcome to apply.
- Candidates for the Fellowship will need to work primarily at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building rather than at other divisions of the Library.
- People seeking funding for research leading directly to a degree are not eligible.
- The fellow receives 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.
- Each Fellow gives a talk over lunch on his or her 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.
Deadline: Friday, September 25, 2020.
