Fellows will be selected by October 31, 2023. All theatre placements will be confirmed by November 20, 2023.
Thank you for your interest in being a fellow in the New Jersey Theatre Alliance Career Accelerator Program. This 6-month program includes three 8-week placements, two with professional theatres and one with New Jersey Theatre Alliance, to learn about theatre administration and management in real-world contexts. This program is specifically designed to support emerging theatre professionals who identify as people of color, indigenous, trans, non-binary, and/or disabled who want to build a career in New Jersey theatre.
During each placement, the Career Accelerator Fellow will work 16 hours per week for a pay rate of $15/hour, paid by New Jersey Theatre Alliance. Fellows will also receive $500 toward travel expenses and $500 toward supporting life needs that allow them to participate in this program such as health care, child care, debt repayment, or tuition costs.
In addition to learning in the field, fellows will participate in professional development seminars, mentoring meetings, and check-ins with the Alliance Staff.
Host theatres and fellows are matched based on preference, location, fit, and capacity.
This application is required for fellows that would like to participate in this 6-month program in its entirety (January - June 2024).
