Design Incubation Fellowship 2017: Call for Applications

Design Incubation is currently accepting applications for the January 2017 Fellowship and Workshop Sessions. The application deadline is September 1, 2016.

Application Process

Design Incubation is currently accepting applications for the January 2017 Fellowship and Workshop Session. The application deadline is September 1, 2016.

The upcoming 2017 Design Incubation Fellowship will be held January 12–14, 2017 at the Manhattan campus of St. John’s University, 51 Astor Place, New York, NY 10003.

Applicants are required to provide contact information, title/current rank, institutional affiliation, a CV, and a 200-word biography. Candidates also need to indicate for which of the 2 tracks they are applying. (see Fellowship Program Format.)

Preference will be given to full-time faculty currently employed by accredited colleges or universities. Adjuncts and independent scholars are also encouraged to apply.

There is no fee to apply for the Design Incubation Fellowship. However upon acceptance there is a $100 fee for the 3-day workshop and all Fellows must be available to participate in person at the Design Incubation Fellowship workshops. A formal letter of acceptance will be provided so attendees can apply for travel funds from their home institutions and pay the workshop fee to reserve their place.

Fellowship Program Format

Design Incubation Fellows commit to working on a research project for six months. The Fellowship begins with a three-day workshop (see below) where participants learn about different modes of publishing and writing strategies. During the six months following the Workshop, Fellows pledge to continue to work on their projects during which time they receive feedback and group checkin’s. The 2017 Design Incubation Fellowship Workshop will take place at St. John’s University’s Manhattan Campus on January 12-14 2017. All Fellows are required to participate in the Fellowship Workshop.

Ways to Apply
Applicants who wish to apply to the Design Incubation Fellowship may choose to pursue one of two modes for engaging with original research projects.

Track 1
In the first scenario participants bring a manuscript or draft of an article to the fellowship and receive feedback from workshop mentors and other attendees. These participants submit a draft of their writing as part of their application and receive feedback on their work during the Fellowship workshop.

Track 2
The second option allows participants who may not have a project in progress to take part in the fellowship and benefit from the experience of the workshop mentors and the group. These applicants will choose to work on an exhibition, book review or statement of practice with the goal of publishing finished work in an academic or trade journal. They will complete a draft of the review prior to arriving at the workshop but do not need to have a review started in order to apply for the Fellowship.

Who can apply: Design Incubation Fellowships are open to academics in one or more of the following areas: graphic design, information design, branding, marketing, advertising, typography, web, interaction, film and video, animation, illustration, game design.

See Fellowship Application Process page for full details.
