The Drama League Fellowships, part of an umbrella of programs collectively known as "The Directors Project," are intended for directors to advance their careers, hone their artistry, and elevate their work to the next level of their professional development. Each Fellowship has a clearly-defined area of focus that offers industry-leading opportunities for training, network development, mentorship, production experience, and creative growth.

These Fellowships vary in both area of specialization and in intended participant: some are intended for early-career directors, and some are intended for mid-career directors. At the top of each application form, these designations will be specified.
How do we define 'early-career'? Generally, we see it as a director who has worked as a director in professional or semi-professional theater for roughly 2-6 years; has not had a Broadway, Off-Broadway or major regional production; and generally, has completed fewer than five production assistantships. How do we define 'mid-career'? Directors whose experiences exceed the above criteria. Applicants who are unsure of how they fit into these categorizations should contact us directly before applying, to discuss their specific circumstances and program suitability.
