New York, NY






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.

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.


The new 2050 Administrative Fellowship program is designed to provide first-rate instruction and mentorship to young professionals who are underrepresented in the field of theatre administration. We seek applicants with a unique cultural perspective inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, class, physical ability and sexual orientation who are interested in working in an administrative capacity at a not-for-profit arts organization.


The first full season of the program will run from July 2017 through June 2018.




The application for the 2017/18 season is now open. Please review the fellowship goals, guidelines and timeline, and our frequently asked questions before submitting your application.
