Jen Hoguet Awarded 2015 T. Fellowship from Columbia University School of the Arts
T. Fellowship, in association with Columbia University School of the Arts, announces Jen Hoguet as the fourth fellow in the one-year program designed to educate and empower new creative producers. The fellow will receive a stipend of $10,000 with a $20,000 budget for the development of a new theatrical production.
"Jen Hoguet projects a strong, creative and realistic approach to Broadway producing and her proposal is the most potentially rewarding," notes T. Fellowship Mentor and Founder, Harold Prince, of Jen's Fellowship application. "Though serious, she is extremely persuasive."
The T. Fellowship mentors are Harold Prince (Mentor and Founder), Margo Lion, Gregory Mosher, Tom Schumacher, Jeffrey Seller and David Stone. The program is managed by Columbia University School of the Arts. The T. Fellowship Committee Members will serve as mentors to the selected Fellow.
Other advisors and staff for the T. Fellowship program include Victoria Bailey (Executive Director, Theatre Development Fund), Director Orin Wolf (President of NETworks), Co-director Steven Chaikelson (Head of the MFA Theatre Management & Producing Concentration at the School of the Arts), Ed Wilson (Co?Founder) and Allen Greenberg (Director of The Geraldine Stutz Trust).
The T. Fellowship was established to honor the legacy of Broadway producer T. Edward Hambleton by supporting and developing a new generation of gifted, emerging creative theatrical producers, who initiate work from the ground up, following a path all their own.
Orin Wolf and John Pinkard were awarded the first two T. Fellowships in 2006. Aaron Glick was awarded the third T. Fellowship in 2013.
