Application Deadline: September 28th 2018
The Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers is an international fellowship program open to people whose work will benefit directly from access to the collections at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building—including academics, independent scholars, and creative writers (novelists, playwrights, poets). Visual artists at work on a book project are also welcome to apply. The Center appoints 15 Fellows a year for a nine-month term at the Library, from September through May. In addition to working on their own projects, the Fellows engage in an ongoing exchange of ideas within the Center and in public forums throughout the Library.
- Each year’s Fellows are chosen from a large field of applicants by a careful process of review and selection.
- Fellows from all over the United States and abroad work at the Center for a term that runs from September through May.
- The Selection Committee looks for diversity in gender, race, and age, seeking talented young writers and scholars as well as those with established reputations. The principal criteria for acceptance are the excellence of the applicant’s previous work and the significance of the new project’s need for sustained access to The New York Public Library’s Humanities and Social Sciences research collections.
