Funded Cullman Center International Scholarship in New York, USA has opened the application for academics, independent scholars, journalists, and creative writers in the 2019-2020 academic year. The Cullman Center’s Selection Committee awards up to 15 Fellowships a year to outstanding scholars and writers—academics, independent scholars, journalists, creative writers (novelists, playwrights, poets), and visual artists working on a book projects. 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, such as the Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts; the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture; or the Science, Industry and Business Library. People seeking funding for research leading directly to a degree are not eligible.
The Cullman Center looks for top-quality writing. 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 $70,000, 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 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.
International applicants are eligible to apply for these fellowships.
Successful candidates for this Fellowship will need to work primarily at the Schwarzman Building rather than at other divisions of the Library, such as the Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts; the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture; or the Science, Industry and Business Library. Applications from those working not in English are welcome; however, the applicant must be conversant in English, and the application materials must be in English.
In order to avoid real or apparent conflicts of interest, the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers does not accept applications from New York Public Library staff members or their partners, or from people active on the Library’s Board of Trustees, Board Advisory Committees, or Library Council.
