Fox Foundation Resident Actor Fellowships


To assist applicants on their Fox Fellowship application, TCG will be holding information sessions in June and July. The sessions will happen via teleconference and webchat and are free to attend. The sessions will be held: Thursday, June 22, 2017, 2pm-3pm ET and Wednesday, July 12, 2017, 2pm-3pm ET.

Description

A fellowship for actors that supports their artistic and professional growth in collaboration with a TCG Member theatre. Grants will be awarded in each of the following two categories:


Exceptional Merit
$15,000 (with an additional $10,000 available to relieve student loan debt) supports actors who are established in their careers as working professionals with 10 years or more of professional experience. Those with less experience are still eligible to apply but must recognize that they are competing with actors who have demonstrated a sustained dedication to their careers. Funds will support actors who are evaluating the current state of their career and envisioning what their career could be as they continue to grow in their artistry.

Distinguished Achievement
$25,000 supports actors with 20 years or more of experience who have amassed a substantial body of work. Recipients are awarded grants to allow them to look for opportunities for continued growth and sustain the longevity of their careers. Recipients will use these resources to adapt to the physical changes as an actor later in their career and changes to casting.

The goals of the Fox Foundation Resident Actor Fellowships are:

  • To further an actor's artistic and professional development.
  • To deepen and enrich his/her relationship with a not-for-profit theatre.
  • Ensure his/her continued professional commitment to live theatre.
  • To encourage actors to work outside their comfort zone.
