The selected Fellow will work with the Kennedy Centre’s departments of International Programming and Arts and Wellbeing as an advisor and partner to develop a project that focuses on these connections.

The Fellow will have access to performances, rehearsals, special events, Kennedy Centre programmers, artistic advisors, artists, staff of the education department and administrative staff as requested and approved. They will also be able to utilise connections that the Centre has with other institutions, including but not limited to: NIH, The SoundHealth Network, Johns Hopkins University, and environmental organisations.

Strong applicants will be emerging or established experts in their fields, self-motivated, with experience and projects in the arts and/or sciences that align with the Kennedy Centre’s mission, values, and goals.

Eligible candidates will be researchers or professionals in the performing arts, research science, or a related field, and be a citizen of and resident in one of the following countries: Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia, Morocco, Turkey, or South Korea.

The selected participant will receive J-1 visa sponsorship, J-1 visa compliant health benefits, and round-trip international travel to the United States. The Fulbright visiting scholar will also receive a stipend to cover living expenses, settling in, and professional development allowances, and if applicable, a dependent allowance intended to offset the cost of required dependent health insurance. J visa compliant health insurance and travel costs for accompanying dependents are the responsibility of the participant.
