The Hodder Fellowship will be given to artists of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the 2022-2023 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.
Offered by the residency:
Hodder Fellows spend an academic year at Princeton, but no formal teaching is involved. An $86,000 stipend is provided for this 10-month appointment as a Visiting Fellow. Fellowships are not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree. One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply.
