The New York Public Library’s Cullman Center is now accepting entries for its fellowships programme from journalists, writers and others working on book projects.

The Center looks for top-quality writing from academics as well as from creative writers and independent scholars. Visual artists whose projects require extensive use of Library collections are also encouraged to apply.

The Center aims to promote dynamic conversation about the humanities, social sciences, and scholarship at the highest level—within the Center, in public forums throughout the Library, and in the Fellows’ published work.

Successful candidates for this Fellowship will need to work primarily at the Schwarzman Building rather than at other divisions of the Library. Applications from those working in languages other than English are welcome; however, the applicant must be conversant in English, and the application materials must be in English.

The fellowship provides up to US$75,000, an office, a computer and full access to the Library’s resources to each fellow.

Completed applications and supporting materials -research proposal, Curriculum Vitae, letters of recommendation, and creative writing sample or artwork sample – must be submitted by 5 p.m. EDT on September 25, 2020.

Interested applicants should first register at before applying.
