Deadline: Assembling Voices Resident Fellows Program

May 15, 2021
Online

The American Assembly was founded to convene expertise to address the nation’s increasingly complicated social and political problems. Today it remains committed to supporting the structures of social life which build and sustain the trust on which modern democratic societies depend.

In honor of The American Assembly’s 70th anniversary, we are launching the Emerging Voices Resident Fellows Program, starting in September 2021. This up-to two-year program creates an opportunity for artists, writers, scholars, journalists, performers, activists, and others to conceive, develop and put into place public initiatives that bring people together to address pressing social justice and human rights issues of our time, especially those relevant to Black, Indigenous, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, and other historically marginalized groups.

Program Benefits:

  • Income support* ($25,000/year)
  • Initiative support up to $10,000/year
  • Intellectual support from INCITE/TAA research staff
  • Access to event and workspace
  • Mentorship (from Columbia University faculty and INCITE/TAA staff)
  • Administrative and logistical support
  • Professional development and capacity building workshops and networking opportunities 

Information sessions are available on Thursday, April 22, and Thursday, April 29.
