The American Library in Paris Fellowship
The AMERICAN LIBRARY IN PARIS Visiting Fellowship Program is sponsored by The de Groot Foundation.
The Visiting Fellowship offers writers and researchers an opportunity to pursue a creative project in Paris while participating actively in the life of the American Library. Fellowship applicants should be working on a book project, fiction or nonfiction, or a feature-length documentary film, which resonates with the Library’s Franco-American tradition and interests.
Applications for The American Library in Paris Visiting Fellowship are now closed. Applications will open again late fall 2023.
