The Education Division of the Folger Shakespeare Library has begun the application process for the fall session of its High School Fellowship Program! This program will run from September 9 through December 9, 2013, with meetings twice weekly (3:45pm-6:00pm). This year’s titles are Measure for Measure, Titus Andronicus, & Romeo and Juliet. The application deadline is Friday, April 26.
Sixteen high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors will be awarded fellowships to participate in this series of seminars, workshops, and performances that will give them the opportunity to explore Shakespeare’s plays as scholars, actors, and audience members. Students will work directly with a distinguished group of scholars and theatre practitioners, including Georgianna Ziegler, Head of Reference at the Folger, and Maynard Mack, Jr., Professor of English at the University of Maryland.
We encourage applications from students with a variety of strengths and interests. In particular, we are very eager to assemble a group of students genuinely interested in learning more about Shakespeare alongside other students from widely diverse schools. We have found that success in this program derives, above all, from the willingness to make a commitment to this particular program and to take full advantage of this unique opportunity.
