The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation annually awards approximately 200 Fellowships from between 3 – 4,000 applications. The Fellowship awards, also deemed as “midcareer awards”, are for men and women with careers and abilities in the arts, sciences, and history.
Former Guggenheim Fellows become advisers who help narrow down the competition by sending their critiques to a Committee of Selection then onto the Board of Trustees. Winners from the United States and Canada competition were announced in early April.
