Guggenheim fellowships are financial grants (by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation) to selected individuals made for a minimum of six months and a maximum of twelve months. The purpose is to allow Fellows to have as much creative freedom as possible. There are no special conditions on how Fellows spend the money. Only advanced professionals in natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and creative arts are allowed to apply.
Grants are considered yearly in one of its competitions where the work of the artists or scientists will be reviewed by the Foundation's network of advisors. After the review, the Committee of Selection weighs the applications field by field and makes the final decisions.
Approximately, 200 grants are awarded a year. The average amount granted is $35,000.
