MacArthur Fellows on How Their Fellowship Impacted Them

All year we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the MacArthur Fellowship and highlighting the MacArthur Fellows Program’s commitment to recognizing exceptionally creative and inspiring individuals with no-strings-attached grants.

Much has changed over the past forty years, but a few things have stayed the same: MacArthur Fellows in various fields have pursued their creative ideas, cultivated cross-disciplinary collaborations, and inspired us with their field-changing endeavors.

Throughout the year, we have been posting reflections from MacArthur Fellows on how the Fellowship has impacted them. Today, we are sharing seven more perspectives on how the award has impacted their work, outlook, and much more.
