Tuesday, August 2, 2016
- The International Society for the Performing Arts (ISPA) is now accepting applications for the 2017 Global Fellowship Program. ISPA’s 2017 Global Fellowship Program will provide financial support to emerging leaders in the performing arts to join the ISPA membership and attend the New York 2017 ISPA Congress taking place January 10 – 12th, 2017. Information on how to apply can be found in the Global Fellowship Program section of the ISPA website. The deadline to submit an application is Thursday, September 1st, 2016 at 17:00 EDT.

About ISPA’s Fellowship Program

The ISPA Global Fellowship Program was created in 2007 to provide emerging and mid-career performing arts professionals with an opportunity to expand their international network by attending an ISPA Congress. Each year a group of emerging to mid-career leaders are selected to participate in the program. Since inception, ISPA has invested more than $280,000 in 112 Global Fellowships from 46 different countries. In 2017, ISPA Global Fellows will receive: 

  • Complimentary one-year ISPA membership with full access to all member benefits
  • Complimentary full pass registration to the New York 2017 Congress 
  • Access to a one day arts management seminar prior to the Congress where Fellows have the opportunity to interact with their colleagues and learn from global industry professionals through a series of conversations and workshops (to take place January 9, 2017)
  • Subsidy to assist with travel and accommodation expenses related to attending the New York ISPA Congress (cash subsidies do not generally exceed 2,500 USD)

Major benefits to successful ISPA Fellows will include

  • Introduction to the ISPA network of 500 arts professionals from 55 countries around the world
  • Opportunity to engage in the development  and exchange of ideas with leaders from some of the world’s most significant presenting organizations, performing arts centers, artist management agencies, cultural policy groups, foundations, festivals, and related professionals 
  • Increased industry knowledge and resources through educational opportunities
  • Opportunity to share their experiences in their communities

All applications will be reviewed be a committee representing the ISPA membership, Board and staff. Unfortunately demand for the program exceeds ISPA’s resources and not all requests will be funded. We anticipate awarding 11 – 13 Fellowships in 2017.
