National Playwright Residency Program (NPRP)

ADDRESS: The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, 140 E 62nd St, New York, NY 10065

NOTES: See website. Submission window is open between July 11, 2019 and September 12, 2019. The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, in collaboration with HowlRound Theatre Commons at Emerson College, established the National Playwright Residency Program (NPRP) in 2013. The program provides three years of salary, benefits, and a flexible research and development fund for a diverse group of American playwrights at selected theaters around the country. More than a standard residency, we conceived this initiative as an intervention into the traditional relationships between artists and institutions, as a way of reimagining what institutions might look like when an artist’s voice is at their cores. 

SUBMISSION INFORMATION: Residencies will be selected through an open application process. Theaters and playwrights must apply jointly by submitting statements of intent from the playwright and artistic director; a scope of work; and other specified materials to demonstrate eligibility, potential to achieve the goals of the program, and desire to participate in a growing network to advance artist-centered practices in the theater field. See website for details and application. .
