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

Established in 1925 by former U.S Senator Simon Guggenheim and his wife, in memory of seventeen-year-old John Simon Guggenheim, their eldest son, who died in 1922, the foundation awards approximately a hundred and seventy-five fellowships per year to advanced professionals who have demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.

Fellowships are granted to selected individuals for a minimum of six months and a maximum of one year to help provide fellows with blocks of time to work with as much creative freedom as possible. The fellowship is open to writers, scholars, or scientists who have a significant record of publication and artists, playwrights, filmmakers, photographers, composers, or the like, who have a substantial history of exhibition or performance of their work.

All applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or Canada at the time of application.
