The Lucille Lortel Theatre Foundation Fellowships
Information for Applicants
Through the Lucille Lortel Theatre Foundation Fellowships, selected students are placed in internship positions with select off-Broadway theatres and drama organizations. In addition to their internships, Fellows develop together as a peer-supported cohort and receive group mentorship from George Forbes, Executive Director of the Lucille Lortel Theatre Foundation, and fellowship advisor Shawtane Bowen. Selected students with eligible financial need also receive need-based living stipends, which typically range from $1,000-$3,000.
This opportunity is available to 8-12 rising sophomores through seniors (2nd-term through 7th-term), selected based on need and merit factors. The Fellowship is open to students in all disciplines, and a range of internship roles will be available to meet the interests of Drama students and students in other discipline areas.
