Fox Foundation Resident Actor Fellowships

The Fox Foundation Resident Actor Fellowships support an actor's artistic and professional growth in collaboration with a TCG Member theatre. Grants are awarded in the following categories:

Exceptional Merit

$15,000 (with an additional $10,000 available to relieve student loan debt) supports actors who are established in their careers as working professionals with 10 years or more of professional experience. Those with less experience are still eligible to apply but must recognize that they are competing with actors who have demonstrated a sustained dedication to their careers. Funds will support actors who are evaluating the current state of their career and envisioning what their career could be as they continue to grow in their artistry.

Distinguished Achievement

$25,000 supports actors with 20 years or more of experience who have amassed a substantial body of work. Recipients are awarded grants to allow them to look for opportunities for continued growth and sustain the longevity of their careers. Recipients will use these resources to adapt to the physical changes as an actor later in their career and changes to casting.

The goals of the Fox Foundation Resident Actor Fellowships are:

  • To further an actor's artistic and professional development.
  • To deepen and enrich an actor's relationship with a not-for-profit theatre.
  • Ensure the actor's continued professional commitment to live theatre.
  • To encourage actors to work outside their comfort zone.

The William & Eva Fox Foundation™ provides grants to actors and not-for-profit charitable organizations to promote study, research, and training in the field of acting and to encourage participation by actors and potential audiences in non-commercial theater.
