Fellowships

Overview

The Woolly Mammoth Fellowship Program is designed for early career professionals looking for an opportunity to experience a deep dive into the day to day operations of a professional arts organization. Fellows are assigned specific disciplines within each department where they will focus primarily on advancing their understanding and skill set surrounding the needs of managing the specific department. Fellows will participate in many institution wide events and meetings, and their experience will culminate with a project that will be produced solely by the fellow class. These posts are full-time, year-long commitments (unless otherwise noted). A travel stipend is provided. Candidates should submit a resume and cover letter, including a statement of purpose. Additional materials may be required for specific fellowships.

The deadline for applications for 2019-2020 Fellowships has passed. Information about 2020-2021 Fellowships will be posted here once it is available.
