A $5,000 stipend will be paid before start of a Fellowship period. The award, to be spent at the discretion of the Fellow, is designed to cover travel to Paris, accommodation, and expenses associated with the month in Paris. In addition to the stipend, the Library will connect the fellow to resources and people in Paris that could be helpful to his or her project.
Who should apply?
We welcome the applications of writers and researchers wishing to pursue a creative project for a month or longer while participating actively in the intellectual life of the American Library. Applicants should be working on a book project, fiction or non-fiction, or a feature-length documentary film, that contributes to cross-cultural discourse.
There are two one-month Fellowship periods a year in fall and spring, with dates to be specified later.
Particular attention will be paid to an applicant’s ability to offer the Library community a variety of opportunities for exploring a topic.
International applicants are encouraged—you need not be American to apply. The proposed project must be in English.
Members of the Library governance are not eligible recipients of a Visiting Fellowship.
The Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of The de Groot Foundation.
