GUGGENHEIM FELLOWSHIP AWARDS, 2007

JOHN SIMON GUGGENHEIM MEMORIAL FOUNDATION 2007 United States and Canadian Fellows
Since 1925 the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has annually offered Fellowships to artist, scholars, and scientists in all fields. The 2007 Committee of Selection, drawing on recommendations from panels and juries involving hundreds of distinguished artists, scholars, and scientists, has chosen 189 Fellows from 2,773 applicants for awards totaling $7,600,000. Guggenheim Fellows are appointed on the basis of unusually impressive achievement in the past and exceptional promise for future accomplishment.


In a time of decreased funding for individuals in the arts, humanities, and sciences, the Guggenheim Fellowship program has assumed a greatly increased importance, and the Foundation is successfully raising funds to enable the appointment of a larger number of Fellows each year. Scores of Nobel, Pulitzer, and other prize winners appear on the roll of Fellows, which includes Ansel Adams, W. H. Auden, Aaron Copland, Martha Graham, Langston Hughes, Henry Kissinger, Vladimir Nabokov, Isamu Noguchi, Linus Pauling, Philip Roth, Paul Samuelson, Wendy Wasserstein, Derek Walcott, James Watson, and Eudora Welty.

The full list of 2007 Fellows may be viewed at www.gf.org .
