Guggenheim Fellows

Guggenheim Fellows “are awarded to men and women who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.”

Eligibility Requirements:

  • U.S. or Canadian Citizen.
  • Persons who have already received a Guggenheim Fellowship are not eligible to apply for another.
  • Guggenheim Fellowships are not available for the creation of residencies, curriculum development, or any type of educational program, nor are they available to support the development of websites or blogs.
  • Awards are intended for individuals only; they are not available to organizations, institutions, or groups.
  • We regret that our awards are not available to support the writing of literature for children or young readers.
  • For all writers, if you have mainly published in periodicals, or on websites, it might be premature for you to apply here at this stage of your career, given the rigorous nature of our competition.
