American Library in Paris Cultural Fellowship

The American Library in Paris is proud to announce its new Cultural Fellowship, a program that is designed to support and showcase the talent of artists across various mediums. Building upon the success of our Visiting Fellowship and Writer-In-Residence Programs, this new fellowship offers a $5,000 stipend, private office space, and unlimited access to the American Library’s vast collections of books, newspapers, magazines, and archives. Fellows will have the chance to immerse themselves in the creative atmosphere of Paris and to take inspiration from the city’s dazzling history of artistic production. 

Through their institutional affiliation with the American Library in Paris, Fellows will also become part of a long lineage of Franco-American artistic collaboration and exchange. Over the course of their residency, Fellows will have the opportunity to engage with audiences in Paris through a variety of public-facing programs. They might, for example, stage a performance at the Library; host a masterclass in their chosen medium; and participate in roundtable conversations about the role of the arts in the twenty-first century.

The American Library in Paris has been a hub of transatlantic cultural relations for more than a century. With the new Cultural Fellowship, the Library aims to enrich this legacy even further.

The Cultural Fellowship is generously supported by the Florence Gould Foundation and the American Center for Art and Culture.
