Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation Invites Universities and Colleges to Apply for Guest Artist Initiative Program

The Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation, the not-for-profit foundation affiliated with Stage Directors and Choreographers, is accepting grant proposals for SDCF’s Guest Artist Initiative Program.

Through the program, SDCF facilitates and funds the hiring of professional SDC directors and choreographers to helm theater productions at universities and colleges across the United States.

American colleges and universities may apply for matching funds of up to $5,000 for guest artist fees for a director or choreographer for a specific project. An SDCF panel comprised of professional directors and choreographers, arts administrators, and college educators will select productions for the award. Two proposals will receive funding and facilitation services, and several more will be offered free facilitation services. The schools will be solely responsible for selecting the Guest Artist from among SDC member applicants.

Please note that the production can be mounted as part of the academic curriculum or as an extra-curricular student activity; it is not limited to theater departments.

Complete grant program guidelines and application instructions are available at the SDC Web site.

Deadline 5-16-2011
