CBA Fellowships are unique in that we don’t ask artists and scholars to produce finished work. We understand that projects can take a long time to come to fruition and we recognize that the benefits of CBA Fellowships will serve artists and scholars in many valuable ways throughout their careers.

Still, we are delighted when CBA Fellowship projects are published or presented in a public setting. The list below contains such works.

If you are a CBA Fellow and would like to suggest an addition to this list, please email us at nyucba@gmail.com.
