Established by Mary Orr Denham in 2006 with a bequest to the SDC Foundation in honor of her late husband, Reginald H. F. Denham, the Denham Fellowship is an annual award to women directors to further develop their directing skills. The Denham Fellowship recipient will be selected by a committee of theatre professionals. Application to the Denham Fellowship is open to female SDC Members and Associates only. 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. Selection will be made by a committee of theatre professionals. The recipient of the 2015-2016 Denham Fellowship will be notified in September.
PAST DENHAM FELLOWS include May Adrales, Tea Alagic, Rachel Alderman, Kathleen Amshoff, Jessi D. Hill, Joanie Schultz and Bridget Leak.
AWARD: One award of $2,500 will be granted per fiscal year.
