Kennedy Center Fellowships

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts offers valuable training for arts managers through its Fellowship Program. The program provides 10 highly motivated, disciplined, and creative artists and arts managers the instruction and experience they need to succeed in today’s complex arts environment.

Fellows enjoy close working relationships with experienced arts professionals, hands-on work opportunities, a structured blend of independent and collective learning experiences, and the opportunity to work in one of the busiest and most artistically diverse performing arts centers in the United States. Fellows are expected to attend performances and educational events, as well as complete significant projects within the context of the Kennedy Center.

Fellowships are full-time and last 10 months starting in September and ending in June. The Kennedy Center emphasizes excellence, creativity, economic problem solving, strategic planning, internationalism, and a commitment to new technologies.

Fellows receive an annual stipend of $20,000 (paid bi-weekly) to help defray housing and transportation costs. Course tuition, materials, and health insurance are provided at no cost to the Fellow. Round-trip transportation from country of origin to Washington, D.C. will be provided for international Fellows only.

The application period is 1 January to 1 April 2007. For additional information visit www.kennedy-center.org/education/artsmanagement or email artsmanagement@kennedy-center.org.
