Authors Lauren Groff and China Miéville are among the 2018 Guggenheim Fellows, announced April 4, 2018 by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. Fellowships were awarded to 173 recipients across 49 fields of study. “Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.”
The Foundation was started in 1925 and has awarded grants totaling more than $360 million. Fellowships are through two annual competitions: one for citizens and permanent residents of the US and Canada, and one for citizens and permanent residents of Latin America and the Caribbean. The deadline to apply for the US and Canada competition is September 19, 2018.
