Design & Directing Conservatory
The Design Fellows serve first and foremost as Assistant Designer on all full productions. They also design our New Play Workshop signature readings (within the given constraints) giving them the opportunity to work closely with professional directors and playwrights in intensive one or two week collaborations. Involvement in special projects and additional programming varies in each department. As CTC is a small but substantial operation, Fellows are also expected to provide additional skilled labor as needed within their departments. Fellows work under the supervision of both the artistic director and the production manager.
Is there a Stipend?
The directing and design fellows receive housing and a stipend. The term of engagement is for nine weeks, with a staggered start by department.
Who should apply?
Applicants for the Design Fellowship program have historically been designers who are currently enrolled in graduate training programs. Those having recently completed their training, or at an equivalent stage in their artistic journey are also welcome to apply. In past seasons the positions have been filled by graduate students from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, Yale School of Drama, The University of Texas at Austin, Carnegie Mellon University, Boston University and CalArts among others.
How Can I apply?
Interested graduate design students should submit a resume with reference contact information, and a brief cover letter via email to Fellows@CTCompany.org. We will arrange for an interview as appropriate.
