Howard Foundation Offers Support for Projects in Visual Arts, Media Studies, and the History of Art and Architecture

Deadline: October 17, 2006 (Nomination Form)

The George A. and Eliza Howard Foundation (<a href=""></a>) awards a limited number of fellowships each year for independent projects in the arts, humanities, and social sciences on a rotational basis.

Approximately ten fellowships will be offered for the 2007-08 year to support persons engaged in independent projects in the following fields: Visual Arts, Media Studies, and the History of Art and Architecture.

The intention of the foundation is to support people in the middle stages of their careers whose achievements to date demonstrate promise of future distinction. Nominees generally should have the rank of associate (or advanced assistant) professor or their non-academic equivalents. Independent artists and scholars who have a significant record of accomplishments are encouraged to apply.

Candidates, regardless of their country of citizenship, must be professionally based in the United States, either by affiliation with an institution or by residence.

The proposed project should be an original and important contribution to the candidate’s field and should also demonstrate the candidate’s growth and creativity.

Stipends for one year (normally) are $25,000.

Visit the foundation’s Web site for complete program information and the nomination form.
