stanfordartslogoDeadline: 10 January 2017

The Stanford Arts Institute, invites applications for one-year visiting fellowships. Fellows are expected to conduct interdisciplinary research on the theme “Creative Cities.” Each Fellow will be affiliated with the Stanford Arts Institute, as well as with a relevant department or programme at Stanford.

2017-18 Fellowship Theme: “Creative Cities: The Role of Art in Reimagining Cities”

Across the globe, in cities small and large, from Beijing to Mexico City to Pawtucket, Rhode Island, city histories have been reconsidered (and are being rebuilt) with art as a central lens. This fellowship seeks candidates with a strong record of scholarly research and/or creative work on the intersection of art and urban centers. The Institute is interested in candidates who can reach across disciplines (such as economics, geography, public policy, urban design) as well as artistic media.

Eligibility and Requirements

Fellowships are for one full academic year, and require the fellow to be in residence at Stanford during Autumn, Winter, and Spring Quarters (mid-September 2017 through mid-June 2018). Candidates will normally have an MFA or interdisciplinary PhD in the arts. Independent artists and scholars must demonstrate artistic or scholarly achievement equivalent to a relevant terminal degree. Fellows will be expected to teach one undergraduate course and contribute to University-wide working groups, seminars, and public discussions. Fellows will also have the opportunity to present their work in events open to the public.

There are no citizenship requirements for these fellowships; non-U.S. nationals are welcome to apply.


Fellows will be awarded a stipend of $60,000 plus benefits.
