Design & Directing Fellowships
Fellowships are offered to early-career directors as well as graduate-level candidates in scenic, lighting, sound, and costume design. Design fellows assist designers on mainstage productions, and are provided with other design opportunities. Directing fellows assist directors on mainstage productions and New Play Workshops. They also take a leading role in community engagement initiatives and talkbacks.
Is there a Stipend?
The directing and design fellows receive a stipend of $2640 for the full summer season. In addition, they receive housing and a travel stipend. The term of engagement is for eight weeks.
Who should apply?
Applicants for the Design Fellowship program have historically been designers who are currently enrolled in graduate training programs. Those having recently completed their training, or at an equivalent stage in their artistic journey are also welcome to apply. In past seasons the positions have been filled by graduate students from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Yale School of Drama, The University of Texas at Austin, Carnegie Mellon University, Boston University and CalArts among others.
