The William & Eva Fox Foundation and Theatre Communications Group established the Fox Foundation Resident Actor Fellowships as a two-year pilot program to support both emerging and established actors.
The Fox Fellowships program seeks to further an actor's artistic and professional development, to deepen and enrich his/her relationship with a not-for-profit theater, to ensure his/her continued professional commitment to live theater, and to encourage actors to work outside their comfort zone.
The fellowships are awarded to actors in two categories — Extraordinary Potential, for early to mid-career actors who have completed their training within the last fifteen years; and Distinguished Achievement, for actors who have demonstrated considerable experience in professional theater, with a substantial body of work.
The program will bestow a total of five fellowships per year in both categories. Recipients in the Extraordinary Potential category will receive $15,000, with an additional $10,000 available to relieve student loan debt. Recipients in the Distinguished Achievement category will receive $25,000. The host theater will receive $7,500 to be applied to costs incurred in the actor's residency activities.
