New York City's Drama League and Broadway director Michael Mayer have announced the creation of the Beatrice Terry Fellowship. 

The fellowship will support the development of an original work from a women writer-director. In a press release, the Drama League states that the fellowship will culminate in "a writing residency, living stipend and a professional reading of the new work at The Drama League Theater Center in Tribeca."

The fellowship memorializes director Beatrice Terry, who died in 2012 of cancer. 

Applications will be open later this year. Click here for more information.
