The Institute’s fellowship program is offered free of charge to arts and cultural executives from across the United States and around the world who are selected through a competitive application process. These fellows attend a four-week program in residence in Washington, D.C. each summer for three consecutive years.

Designed for individuals who have dedicated themselves to management, rather than artistic leadership, the program supports leaders in positions of decision-making authority in developing, implementing, and refining organizational strategies over a three-year, cohort-based engagement. 

Fellowships include:

Intensive, practical training in artistic & strategic planning, marketing, fundraising, board development, finance, community engagement, and evaluation;

  • Access to leaders of cultural institutions from throughout the United States, including site visits to select institutions
  • Intensive, collaborative group work
  • Ongoing personalized mentoring, both during and between the month-long residencies

First-year, second-year, and third-year fellows attend residencies together and engage in activities tailored to their year in the program.

Fellows have served in senior positions at such organizations as the AFCA Foundation for Arts and Culture (Egypt), American Conservatory Theater (San Francisco), Arts Council England, Bosnian National Theatre Zenica, Cameri Theatre of Tel Aviv (Israel), Center for Asian American Media (San Francisco), Ciudad Cultural Konex (Argentina), Cultural Center of the Philippines, Dance UK, Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, Icelandic Opera, Ivan Honchar Museum & National Center of Folk Culture (Ukraine), Joffrey Ballet (Chicago), Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (New York), Lyric Opera of Chicago, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Mexican Center for Music and Sonic Arts, Moscow Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra (Russia), Nashville Children’s Theatre, National Arts Council of Zimbabwe, National Centre for the Performing Arts (China), The Public Theater (New York), Queensland Performing Arts Centre (Australia), Singapore Repertory Theatre, Suzanne Dellal Center for Center for Dance and Theater (Israel), and Vancouver International Film Festival (Canada).

Applicant Criteria

The fellowship is designed to be pursued through the context of each Fellow’s current organization. As such, applicants must:

  • Currently serve as the executive director (or equivalent) or the head of a major department within an arts or cultural organization in a paid, permanent capacity. While the program is equally equipped to serve applicants from both large and small institutions, the applicant’s organization must have at least one full-time staff member, five years of consistent programming history, and an operating budget of at least the equivalent of $250,000 USD / €220,000 EUR.
