CBA Fellowship Program 2020
The CBA Fellowship Program awards residencies to artists and scholars across disciplines to work on projects that expand the way we think about the history, practice, and performance of dance. Applicants are not required to be experts in dance but must have an interest in engaging with the art form. The fellowship provides space, financing, and time to pursue rigorous work. CBA Fellows are encouraged to ask questions and take risks. They gain colleagues they would not otherwise encounter. These engagements between artists and scholars, two communities that do not often intersect, strengthen and deepen the work of both.
Applicants must submit all application materials through the Apply 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 2021 - 2022 academic year fellowship application is Monday, November 2nd, 2020 at 9:00 AM. All application materials including recommendation forms must be submitted by the deadline.
Decisions on applications will be announced in March 2021.
The application should reflect the applicant’s genuine aspirations and expertise. We expect scholars and artists to each demonstrate different strengths that are reflective of their training. Project proposals are not required to involve both scholarly and artistic inquiry. Successful proposals will focus on the project’s essential research questions.
