Bringing together creative artists of all kinds with scholars from across the humanities and sciences, Columbia University’s Institute of Arts and Imagination questions the established ways in which knowledge is defined, produced, and taught.
The Institute’s Artist Fellowship programme provides a stipend of $37,500 per term, or $75,000 for a full academic year (next term from September 2023 – May 2024). Fellows also have their own office at the Institute in Paris, administrative and research support and access to Columbia’s libraries, and various research facilities in Paris and in Europe.
The fellowship is open to creative artists of all kinds (including visual artists, filmmakers, writers, composers, poets, thinkers and others), from anywhere in the world excluding the USA. Creative writers (novelists, poets, playwrights, journalists, essayists) must demonstrate a record of publication; visual artists, musicians, and performers must have a significant body of work that has been exhibited or performed in public.
