NATIONAL HUMANITIES CENTER
The National Humanities Center offers 40 residential fellowships for advanced study in the humanities during the academic year, September 2007 through May 2008. Applicants must hold doctorate or equivalent scholarly credentials. Young scholars as well as senior scholars are encouraged to apply, but they must have a record of publication, and recent Ph.D.s should be aware that the Center does not support the revision of a doctoral dissertation. Scholars from any nation may apply. In addition to scholars from all fields of the humanities, the Center accepts individuals from the natural and social sciences, the arts, the professions, and public life who are engaged in humanistic projects. Deadline October.Fellowships up to $50,000 are individually determined, the amount depending upon the needs of the Fellow and the Center’s ability to meet them. The Center provides travel expenses for Fellows and their dependents to and from North Carolina.
HERMITAGE ARTIST RETREAT
The Hermitage Artist Retreat is for mid-career or later artists � artists who are currently supporting themselves through their work. We curate all our residencies, and therefore we do not have a general application process.
18th STREET ARTS CENTER
18th Street Art Center’s Residency Program is similar to an arts incubator, in that we provide subsidized living and work space for arts organizations and artists. The services to our residents include free administrative and fundraising consultation services; an office equipment co-op and community resources exchange in which residents contribute a service or resource; volunteers; and meeting facilities. Residents of the Los Angeles area are eligible to apply for the Residency Program. Foreign artists from Australia, Eastern Europe, Taiwan and Southeast Asia may also be eligible for our International Visiting Artist Program by applying through cooperative programs with outside government agencies and private foundations.
