The Fulbright / Kennedy Center Fellowship 2024/2025 for Performing Arts And Science

Application Deadline: March 15, 2024. 

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts preserves the legacy of John F. Kennedy and is the National Cultural Center as well as a living monument to the late president. The Kennedy Center is committed to raising public awareness about the benefits of engaging with the arts, facilitating a platform for related health and medical research, and hosting programs for the public to engage in arts-related activities for the purposes of healing. In the interest of communal wellbeing, the Kennedy Center is also committed to raising public awareness about the environment through the arts. The department of International Programming has committed over the next ten years to programming environmentally themed festivals, exhibits, and other events and is exploring ways in which the Center itself can operate in a more sustainable way.

The Fulbright / Kennedy Center Fellowship for Performing Arts And Science, a component of the Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program, provides an opportunity for a Fulbright visiting scholar to connect with artists, staff, educators, and audiences at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. This fellowship is made possible through a partnership between the U.S. Department of State and the Kennedy Center’s departments of International Programming and Arts and Wellbeing. The award was established to support research and innovative multidisciplinary projects addressing the connection between the performing arts, the environment, health, and wellbeing from the point of view of artists and/or scientists. Wellbeing can be defined as communal wellbeing (focusing on climatology, sociology, anthropology, etc.) or individual wellbeing (tapping into medical fields such as neurobiology, psychology, audiology, kinesthesiology, etc.).
