John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship

John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, September 17, 2020

The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation is inviting applications for its annual fellowship program.

Established in 1925 by former U.S. senator Simon Guggenheim and his wife in memory of their son, John Simon, who died in 1922 at the age of 17, the foundation has sought from its inception to “add to the educational, literary, artistic, and scientific power of this country, and also to provide for the cause of better international understanding.”

To that end, the foundation awards approximately 175 fellowships annually to professionals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or creativity in the arts. Fellowships are awarded for a minimum of six months and a maximum of twelve months, with the goal of providing recipients with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible. The fellowship is open to writers, scholars, or scientists with a significant record of publication, as well as artists, playwrights, filmmakers, photographers, composers, and others with a significant record of exhibition or performance of their work.

Applicants must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or Canada at the time of application. Members of the teaching profession receiving sabbatical leave on full or partial salary are eligible for appointment, as are those holding other fellowships and appointments at research centers.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and information about previous fellows, see the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation website.

Wendy is a Self-taught Collage Artist. The main focus of her Mixed Media Collage Work is to intermingle the old with the new. I push boundaries to create & discover different processes in which to incorporate images of older, more worn items with newer ones into my work, all for the purpose of creating one fluid, mystical image of beauty.
