The Denham Fellowship is an annual award given to directors, particularly women directors, to further develop their directing skills by providing $2500 in financial support for the Director’s fee for a particular project.  This fellowship was established in October 2006 by Mary Orr Denham as a bequest to SDCF in honor of her late husband, Reginald H.F. Denham.

Candidates may apply to the Denham Fellowship under one of two plans: fee enhancement or self producing. Under fee enhancement, the Denham Fellowship augments a fee offered to the Director by a theatre or producer.  Under self-producing, the Denham fellowship will serve as or augment the Director’s fee.  Please consult Denham Fellowship Guidelines prior to application.  Selection will be made by a committee of directors and choreographers.

AWARD: One award of $2,500 will be granted per fiscal year.
APPLY: Female SDC Members and Associate Members in good standing may apply.  Board Members may not apply.
