Welcome to The Center's fellowship application page.
The CBA Fellowship Program invites artists and scholars to The Center to develop self-directed projects that expand the way we think about ballet's history, practice, and performance. Fellows come from a multitude of disciplines and bring a breadth of experience to the residency. They are not required to be experts in ballet. The fellowship provides time for fellows to do their work and a place to share their expertise and thinking with one another.
The program provides fellows with a stipend, access to studio and office space, an apartment in some cases and time away from daily life to focus on their specified project – a book, a ballet, a film, a digital lecture series or other work of their imagining related in some way to ballet. Fellows can work alone or in collaboration.
Applicants must create an account to access the application submission portal. Applicants may save applications in process and return to the application at any time until they choose to submit the application.
The deadline for the 2019 - 2020 academic year fellowship application is Saturday, December 1st, 2018. All application materials including recommendation forms must be submitted by the deadline.
Decisions on applications will be announced on March 1, 2019.
