Living Allowance

Life in New York City is expensive.  MTC’s Living Allowance can help!

Manhattan Theatre Club offers Theatre Management Program Internship candidates from historically underrepresented communities the opportunity to apply for a limited number of living allowances to be used as a supplement to weekly compensation.

The supplemental Living Allowance is in addition to the regular weekly compensation that all Summer 2018 interns receive: $455/week for full-time participants and $13/hour for those who work part-time.

The Living Allowance for the Summer 2018 term is $210/week for full-time Theatre Management Program participants and $105/week for those who work part-time.

Application for the Living Allowance is in addition to the standard Theatre Management Program Internship application. Living Allowance application materials are confidential and will not be used to make hiring decisions.


In order to be considered for a Theatre Management Program Living Allowance, you must submit a complete Living Allowance application package, including:

  • Completed Application for the Theatre Management Program Living Allowance CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD
  • Applicants attending college within the last year: your most recent FAFSA Student Aid Report, OR

  • A statement not to exceed 750 words that describes any special circumstances, barriers, or obstacles not reflected in your financial statements which would prevent you from accepting this internship should it be offered to you.
