Applications for TWDP Admin Fellowships are now closed for the season. Please check back in 2025 for when applications open for the 2025–2026 season.

Roundabout provides hands-on learning opportunities for aspiring arts professionals interested in theatre administration careers through full-time year long Fellowships.

We are proud to launch a new Administrative Fellowship program as an expansion of TWDP (Theatrical Workforce Development Program), which is a career development program that focuses on increasing access to careers in the arts and entertainment industry for New Yorkers. 

Fellowships at a Glance

  • Fellowships will run from September to June. 
  • Fellows receive an hourly rate of $16 for four months and then $16.50 for 9 months, and are eligible for health benefits. 
  • Fellows receive monthly MTA cards and a housing stipend ($300 per month). 
  • Fellowships are available in the following administrative departments: Artistic, Development, Education, Finance/Human Resources, Marketing, and Management. 

Fellows will participate in and contribute to an entire artistic season while sharing in the daily organizational operations. Fellows will engage in long-term projects with increasing responsibility and attend regular workshops and weekly seminars with senior staff, as well as receive on-the-job mentorship and training from their host department. The TWDP Administrative Fellowship program is not intended to advance skills for performers, designers, or directors.   

Additional opportunities for Fellows include weekly career-building seminars, participation in the inter-department mentorship program, networking opportunities across the arts administration industry, and an invitation to participate in Roundabout identity-based affinity groups, volunteer opportunities and events.
