Authors Edward Carey, Michael Helm, Carmen Maria Machado, and Luis Alberto Urrea are among the 2019 Guggenheim Fellows, announced April 10, 2019 by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. Fellowships were awarded to 168 recipients across 49 fields of study “on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise.”
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. Applications for the 2020 United States and Canada competition will be available in July 2019.
For more information, including a full list of fellows and competition rules, see the Guggenheim Foundation website.
