“Humanity faces some profound existential challenges,” said Edward Hirsch, award-winning poet and president of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. “The Guggenheim Fellowship is a life-changing recognition. It’s a celebrated investment into the lives and careers of distinguished artists, scholars, scientists, writers, and other cultural visionaries who are meeting these challenges head-on and generating new possibilities and pathways across the broader culture as they do so.”

The 2024 Fellows include scholars, artists, novelists, poets, historians, choreographers, environmentalists, and data scientists. They are engaged in a broad range of issues, including climate change, community, identity, democracy, disability activism, and incarceration.  Since its founding in 1925, the foundation has awarded more than $400 million to some 19,000 Fellows.
