Playwrights Horizons has a strong institutional commitment to diversity and to the principles that promote inclusive practices on our stages and among our staff, Board, and audiences. We are proud to continue this work through the Theatrical Fellowship Program in training the next generation of theater makers. Thanks in part to generous grants from the New York Community Trust’s Van Lier Fellowships, the Tiger Baron Foundation, and the New York State Council on the Arts Regional Economic Development Council, we are pleased to offer a limited number of $10,000 scholarships to outstanding applicants of color during the 2018/19 Season. Note that these scholarship funds will be awarded in addition to the fellowship stipend and monthly MetroCard. Applicants who are not chosen to receive one of these scholarships may still be offered a fellowship.
To be eligible for consideration you must:
- Identify as a person of color
- Have earned a baccalaureate, or have equivalent professional experience
- Complete a supplemental personal statement in addition to the standard application (details outlined below)
