Dance Research Fellowship

Applications for the 2023 Dance Research Fellowship are now closed.

In 2024 the Martha Graham Dance Company begins their celebration for the 100th anniversary of the company, which was founded in 1926. An icon and a radical artist of catalyzing force, Martha Graham transformed the landscape of American dance in her seven decades long career during which she created 181 unique works.

The Jerome Robbins Dance Division, which houses the Martha Graham archive, invites applications from dance scholars and practitioners interested in exploring the legacy of Martha Graham and her choreography. We welcome both written and performative responses to research and, as the company looks ahead to a second century of dance making, we are excited to consider projects that place Graham’s canon in dialogue with the contemporary field. Fellows receive a $10,000 stipend, and the research period is July 1–December 31, 2023.

The 2023-24 Dance Research Fellows will present their projects on Martha Graham at our annual 2024 Dance Symposium on January 26, 2024.
