Cullman Center Fellowships

Cullman Center Fellowships by New York Public Library

Deadline: September 25, 2020
Cash Prize: $75,000

Description 

As a matter of fact, New York Public Library gives up to 15 fellowships annually to poets, fiction writers, creative nonfiction writers, and translators. Moreover, the work of fellows will benefit directly from access to the research collections at the New York Public Library.

The fellows will each receive $75,000, an office at the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library’s main branch in Midtown Manhattan, and full access to the library’s collections, from September 2021 through May 2022.

Fellows will be required to work on their projects at the Cullman Center for the duration of the fellowship. Also, they should give a public talk.

Writers currently enrolled in a graduate degree–granting program are ineligible. Using only the online submission system, submit a writing sample of up to 4,500 words, a project proposal of up to 1,500 words, a curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references by September 25. There is no entry fee.
