Folger Institute Artist Research Fellowship





The Folger Shakespeare Library has embarked on a major renovation project. While this work is underway and Folger collections are unavailable for in-person consultation, the Folger Institute is committed to continuing its support of collections-based research, and to providing scholars and artists with the resources they need to pursue and advance their work. 

The Folger Institute Artist Research Fellowship is open to artists working in all media whose work would benefit from significant primary research. This includes, but is not limited to, visual artists, writers, dramaturgs, playwrights, performers, filmmakers, and composers.

Please note that in 2022–2023, all Artist Research Fellowships will be non-residential. Awards are $3,500 for four weeks of work away from the Folger. All applications are due by 11:59pm ET on 18 January 2022. Fellowships may be undertaken between July 2022 and June 2023.

Resources and Benefits:

  • Access to Folger electronic resources and Researcher Services consultation
  • Opportunities to meet virtually with Folger Theatre, Consort, and Poetry professionals, as well as Folger curators, librarians, and conservators, as relevant
  • Participation in scholarly and community-building programs with other Folger Fellows
  • Exposure on the Folger website, social media, and newsletters
  • J1 Visa sponsorship, if needed
