Entries Open for Cullman Center Fellowship

Anthony W. Marx
President of The New York Public Library

The New York Public Library’s Cullman Center in the United States is now accepting entries from outstanding scholars and writers, including academics, independent scholars, journalists, creative writers, translators, and visual artists, from around the world who are knowledgeable in English, for the 2024-2025 Cullman Center Fellowship programme.

The Cullman Center is looking for top-quality writing and 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.

The Center will select 15 fellows from outstanding scholars and writers—academics, independent scholars, journalists, creative writers (novelists, playwrights, poets), translators, and visual artists.

The Fellowship is also open to foreign nationals proficient in English.

Successful candidates will work primarily at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building rather than at other divisions of the library and persons seeking funding for research leading directly to a degree are not eligible.

Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $75,000 each, the use of an office with a computer, and full access to the Library’s physical and electronic resources.

They will work at the Center for the duration of the fellowship term, which runs from September 2024 through May 2025. 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 programmes at The New York Public Library.

Entries close on September 29, 2023. Please visit http://nypl.onlineapplicationportal.com/ to send in entries.
