Jerome New York Fellowship
The 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 independent 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 City 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).
