Call for Ap­pli­ca­tions

The Dorothy and Lewis B. Cull­man Cen­ter for Schol­ars and Writ­ers is an in­ter­na­tional fel­low­ship pro­gram open to peo­ple whose work will ben­e­fit di­rectly from ac­cess to the col­lec­tions at The New York Pub­lic Li­brary’s Stephen A. Sch­warz­man Build­ing at Fifth Av­enue and 42nd Street–in­clud­ing aca­demics, in­de­pen­dent schol­ars, jour­nal­ists, sci­en­tists en­gaged with the hu­man­i­ties, nov­el­ists, po­ets, graphic nov­el­ists, and play­wrights. The Cen­ter awards up to fif­teen fel­low­ships a year. Each Fel­low re­ceives a stipend of $70,000, an of­fice with a com­puter, and full ac­cess to the Li­brary’s ex­tra­or­di­nary col­lec­tions and cu­ra­to­rial staff. Fel­lows are re­quired to work at the Cull­man Cen­ter for the du­ra­tion of the fel­low­ship term, from Septem­ber through May. The Sch­warz­man Build­ing (for­merly known as the Hu­man­i­ties and So­cial Sciences Li­brary) is one of the world’s pre­em­i­nent re­sources for stud­ies in an­thro­pol­ogy, ar­chi­tec­ture, art, ge­neal­ogy, ge­og­ra­phy, his­tory, an­cient and mod­ern lan­guages and lit­er­a­tures, phi­los­o­phy, pho­tog­ra­phy, politics, pop­u­lar cul­ture, re­li­gion, so­ci­ol­ogy, and ur­ban stud­ies. Suc­cess­ful can­di­dates for this fel­low­ship will need to work pri­mar­ily at the Sch­warz­man Build­ing rather than at other di­vi­sions of the Li­brary, such as the Lin­coln Cen­ter Li­brary for the Per­form­ing Arts; the Schom­burg Cen­ter for Re­search in Black Cul­ture; or the Science, In­dus­try and Busi­ness Li­brary. For­eign na­tion­als con­ver­sant in English are wel­come to ap­ply. In or­der to avoid real or ap­par­ent con­flicts of in­ter­est, the Cull­man Cen­ter does not ac­cept ap­pli­ca­tions from New York Pub­lic Li­brary staff mem­bers or their part­ners, or from peo­ple ac­tive on the Li­brary’s Board of Trus­tees, Board Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tees, or Li­brary Coun­cil. Ap­pli­ca­tion Dead­line: Fri­day, Septem­ber 28, 2018 To ap­ply, and for more in­for­ma­tion about the Cull­man Cen­ter, its Fel­lows, and its pro­grams, go to www.nypl.org/csw. The Cull­man Cen­ter is made pos­si­ble by a gen­er­ous en­dow­ment from Dorothy and Lewis B. Cull­man in honor of Brooke Rus­sell As­tor, with ma­jor sup­port pro­vided by Mrs. John L. Wein­berg, The An­drew W. Mel­lon Foun­da­tion, The Es­tate of Charles J. Lieb­man, The von der Hey­den Fam­ily Foun­da­tion, John and Con­stance Birkelund, and The Sa­muel I. Ne­w­house Foun­da­tion, and with ad­di­tional gifts from The Gilder Lehrman In­sti­tute of Amer­i­can His­tory, He­len and Roger Al­caly, The Rona Jaffe Foun­da­tion, Wil­liam W. Karatz, Mer­ilee and Roy Bo­s­tock, and Cull­man Cen­ter Fel­lows.
