The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation
|Category: Arts & Culture
The Foundation awards fellowships for advanced professionals in all fields including the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and creative arts. The only exception it makes to this list is that it does not provide fellowships for the performing arts. The Foundation understands the performing arts to be those in which an individual interprets work created by others. Accordingly, the Foundation will provide fellowships to composers but not conductors, singers, or instrumentalists; to choreographers but not dancers; and to filmmakers, playwrights and performance artists who create their own work, but not actors or theater directors. The Foundation awards some 200 fellowships annually. Fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. The Foundation seeks to further the development of scholars and artists by helping them engage in research in any field of knowledge and/or creation of any of the arts under the freest possible conditions.
