Fellowships are for two 10-month academic years. An $82,000 salary for each year is included. Fellows will be in residence for academic years 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 at Princeton, interacting with our students, faculty and staff as part of the Lewis Center for the Arts and the Department of Music. The normal work assignment will be to teach one course each semester subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, but Fellows may be asked to take on an artistic assignment in lieu of a class, such as directing a play or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

Princeton Arts Fellows may not hold concurrent teaching positions at other institutions for the duration of the fellowship.

Applicants can only apply for the Princeton Arts Fellowship twice in a life time.
