High School Fellowship Program | International Festival of Arts & Ideas

Do you like drama, drawing, dancing, or even just doodling? Or would you rather read, recite, rehearse or write?

Are you interested in improving your skills in public speaking, presenting, performing, and pondering different points of view?

Do you want the credentials to convey that you can convincingly communicate, carry yourself with confidence, critically consider contrasting cultures, connect with your community and collect college credit?

If you are a New Haven public school sophomore or junior that answered YES to any of these questions, we encourage you to apply to become a Festival Fellow and immerse yourself in the Festival’s programming and behind-the-scenes action in the 6 months leading up to the Festival! (Psst… it’s free!)

The application is due December 15th!
