Thanks to the continued generosity of the Leon Levy Foundation, some Fellows with no academic or institutional affiliation receive supplemental funding as part of their Guggenheim Fellowship to help cover the costs of their research or artistic endeavors, and their living expenses.

Mr. Levy, a pioneer in the creation of both mutual funds and hedge funds, was a humanist with a passion for expanding knowledge.  He was an active and generous trustee of the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation from 1990 to 2003.  For more information, please visit the Leon Levy Foundation.
