The 2016 Guggenheim Fellowships (United States and Canada) competition is now open: http://www.gf.org/about/fellowship
Often characterized as “mid-career” awards, Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for those who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship, or exceptional creative ability in the arts.
Guggenheim Fellowships are grants to selected individuals made for a minimum of six months and a maximum of twelve months. Since the purpose of the Guggenheim Fellowship program is to help provide Fellows with blocks of time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible, grants have no special conditions attached to them, and Fellows may spend their grant funds in any manner they deem necessary to undertake their work.
The Foundation receives between 3,500 and 4,000 applications each year. There is no pre-screening; all applications are reviewed. Approximately 200 Fellowships are awarded each year.
Guggenheim Foundation Deadline: September 18, 2015
