Established in 2013 by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, the Kurt Weill Fellowship helps nurture early-career directors and choreographers by acquainting them with a stage work of Kurt Weill or Marc Blitzstein under the guidance of a master director or choreographer. The Fellowship provides the opportunity to assist or observe a master director or choreographer at work on a production, selected by the Kurt Weill Foundation, of a theatrical work composed by Weill or Blitzstein, including musical theater, opera, operetta, and dance works. The Kurt Weill Fellowship is administered through and operates as a component of the SDC Foundation’s Observership Program; as such, only the current season’s Observership candidates will be eligible for this Fellowship.

AWARD: $2,500 stipend

APPLY: Only those in that year’s SDCF Observership Pool may apply.
