2050 ADMINISTRATIVE FELLOWSHIPS
NYTW is proud to announce the launch of the 2050 Administrative Fellowship program—a sister program to our successful 2050 Artistic Fellowship, which supports emerging playwrights and directors. Replacing our current internship program, the new fellowship represents one of several NYTW initiatives to address the economic barriers that may prevent talented individuals from pursuing careers in the theatre.
For 20 years, NYTW has honed an inclusive fellowship program for emerging theatre makers with a multiplicity of perspectives. These fellowships have taken many forms, supporting playwrights, directors, designers and administrators.
The 2050 Fellowship is named in celebration of the U.S. Census Bureau’s projection that by the year 2050, there will be no single racial or ethnic majority in the United States. This projection provokes thoughts at New York Theatre Workshop about the transformations that will take place in the American landscape – technologically, environmentally, demographically and artistically. They are a catalyst for broader questions about our moral and artistic future.
All interested candidates must submit the following materials by the announced deadline:
- Online application form
- A personal statement (750 word-limit)
- A résumé or CV that lists both administrative and theatre experience
- Two letters of recommendation
After reviewing applications, NYTW will begin sending out interview invitations. Fellowship interviews will take place in mid-April only. Candidates must be available for an in-person or video-chat interview during the interview period. Fellowship decisions will be announced by early May.
