Vera List Center Fellowships

DEADLINE:15 March 2020

The Vera List Center Fellowships support individuals whose work advances the discourse on art and politics. The appointments provide the opportunity to research and develop a project drawing from the curatorial, academic, and professional resources of the Vera List Center for Art and Politics and The New School in New York City, and to bring the research and resulting work to the public through the Vera List Center’s interdisciplinary public programs and organizational networks.


Journalists, scholars, activists, visual and performing artists, critics, public intellectuals, curators, and cultural practitioners working in any field where they engage art and politics are encouraged to apply. The New School is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution. The organizers strongly encourage applications from diverse candidates across the world and welcome applications from individuals without institutional affiliation.


The Vera List Center Fellowship is part-time, and non-residential, and extends over two years. The fellowships carry a US$15,000 stipend as well as extensive curatorial and professional development services to support the research, scholarship and creative work of the project from conception to production and presentation. Each research fellowship is highly individualized, depending on the project and its intended outcomes. Fellows are supported for two years by the VLC’s curatorial and operational team as well as a graduate student research assistant.

It is not necessary to spend two years in New York: Non-New York City residents are provided with an additional travel allowance to undertake short-term residencies, to engage with the VLC’s curatorial team and take full advantage of benefits.
