The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship Program is a highly prestigious external award opportunity designed to recognize individuals in a wide range of disciplines who have demonstrated exceptional capacity for scholarship or creative ability.

Being awarded with a Guggenheim Fellowship is not only an extraordinary accomplishment and opportunity for the recipient, but also a triumph for the university as a whole.
