The Hodder Fellowship will be given to writers and other artists of exceptional promise to pursue independent projects at Princeton University during the 2013–2014 academic year. Hodder Fellows may be writers, composers, choreographers, visual artists, performance artists, or other kinds of artists or humanists who have “much more than ordinary intellectual and literary gifts;” they are selected more “for promise than for performance.” Given the strength of the applicant pool, most successful Fellows have published a first book or have similar achievements in their own fields; the Hodder is designed to provide Fellows with the “studious leisure” to undertake significant new work. Hodder Fellows spend an academic year at Princeton, but no formal teaching is involved. A 68,000 USD stipend is provided.Fellowships cannot fund work leading to the Ph.D. One need not be a U.S. citizen to apply. Apply by November 1, 2012 through the Princeton Human Resources website – www.princeton.edu/jobs; search Open Positions and enter key word “Hodder Fellows.”
