BBC Performing Arts Scheme: Theatre Fellowships Open

The Theatre Fellowship scheme aims to support individuals through the early stages of their theatre careers; helping them to establish themselves in the professional world through bespoke placements within existing theatre organisations. 

Through this scheme, the BBC hopes to increase the Fellows' skills through training and development opportunities tailored to the individual, to raise their aspirations, and to encourage their creativity.

Rather than awarding grants directly to individuals themselves, the BBC is looking for applications from theatre companies, organisations, venues and festivals from across the UK to host a fellow.

More information about the scheme, including application portal, is available here.

The deadline for applications is 22nd July 2013.
