The Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies has selected eight graduate students for fellowships and grants for the 2003-04 academic year to support research and writing on cultural policy topics.
With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the center has been making annual awards since 1998 to graduate students at Princeton and area universities. The center awards $15,000 doctoral fellowships to students who are writing a dissertation on some aspect of cultural policy and $4,000 project grants to students who are working on smaller projects related to arts and culture in America.
Mellon Foundation Doctoral Fellowships were awarded to Gabriel Rossman in Princeton's sociology department and Thierry Rigogne in Princeton's history department. Rossman is studying the effects of media ownership on content in newspapers, movies and radio. Rigogne is completing a dissertation on the book trade in 18th-century France, focusing on the geography of publishing and the effects of censorship and regulation.
The center also named six Mellon Foundation Research Affiliates, including five students from Princeton: Meredith Bostwick, architecture; Ted Coffey, music; Hannah McLaughlin , English; Maria McMath, anthropology; and Yue Zhang, politics. Steven Holochwost, a music student from Rutgers University, also received a grant.
The center is a research program in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs .
