The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation provides fellowships to advanced professionals in all fields — including the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and creative arts (except the performing arts).
The fellowships are intended to assist individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts. The program seeks to further the development of scholars and artists by helping them engage in research in any field of knowledge or creation in any of the arts under the freest possible conditions.
Fellowships provide grants to selected individuals over a period of between six and twelve months.
Deadline: 19 September 2015
