Jerome New York Fellowship
The Lark’s Jerome New York Fellowship provides substantial artistic and financial support to an emerging writer of extraordinary promise and vision through an intensive two-year residency that provides resources and guidance to generate and develop a significant body of work. Fellows receive $40,000 over their two year residency, as well as a $5,000 Opportunity Fund for the purposes of travel, research, or autonomous workshops.
The Jerome New York Fellowship is designed as a life-sustaining opportunity for a playwright who has demonstrated extraordinary early promise, and for whom the resources offered can be transformative.
The Selection Process
Fellows are selected in two-year cycles through an open application process. Applicants must be state residents of New York or Minnesota; citizens or permanent residents of the United States; able to make a case for their status as an “emerging” playwright; and may not have had more than two different works professionally produced at the time of application (meaning works produced on professional Actors Equity contracts or similar international contracts; Equity showcase/waiver productions not included).
