Created to support scholars and practitioners engaged in graduate-level, post-doctoral, and independent research, the Dance Committee is looking for proposals that will uncover new aspects of Jerome Robbins’ legacy including, but not limited to, his photography, artwork and writing, as well as his overall contribution to dance.
"The Dance Research Fellowship is a tremendous opportunity to celebrate the division's namesake and dance visionary, Jerome Robbins," said Jacqueline Z. Davis, Barbara G. and Lawrence A. Fleischman Executive Director of The Library for the Performing Arts. "I look forward to the exciting new work that will emerge from this fellowship and the inspiration it will produce for future generations."
Fellows will be given a stipend of $7,500 and a research period from June 1 to December 31, 2017 to complete their work. Each fellow will be required to participate in a symposium in January 2018 where they will deliver a presentation or performance on the outcome of their research.
The application deadline is April 15, 2017 and interested applicants can find further information on application materials here.
