American Library in Paris Visiting Fellowship

 Residencies / / Popular

The American Library in Paris Visiting Fellowship was created in 2013 to nurture and sustain a heritage as old as the Library itself: furthering cross-cultural intellectual discourse.

The fellowship offers writers and researchers an opportunity to pursue a creative project in Paris for a month or longer while participating actively in the life of the American Library. Applicants should be working on a book project, fiction or non-fiction, or a feature-length documentary film, that contributes to cross-cultural discourse. We are not accepting poetry projects at this time.

Particular attention will be paid to an applicant’s ability to offer the Library community a variety of opportunities for exploring a topic. In addition to the stipend, the Library will connect the fellow to resources and people in Paris that could be helpful to his or her project. The fellowship is open to all nationalities, though the proposed project must be in English.

The fellowship is made possible through the generous support of The de Groot Foundation. There are two one-month fellowship periods a year in fall and spring, with dates to be specified later.

Fellowship award: a $5,000 stipend paid one month before start of fellowship period. The award, to be spent at the discretion of the Fellow, is designed to cover travel to Paris, accommodation, and expenses associated with the month in Paris.
