In collaboration with the internationally renowned Glimmerglass Festival, the Kurt Weill Foundation sponsors a Kurt Weill/Lotte Lenya Glimmerglass Young Artist who has previously reached the finals of the Lotte Lenya Competition. Each season the Young Artist is selected by Glimmerglass Festival administration in consultation with the Kurt Weill Foundation. As of 2016, the Foundation has expanded the program to include sponsorship of a Kurt Weill/Lotte Lenya Artist, a designation reserved for principal guest artists at the Glimmerglass Festival who have earned a Prize in a previous Lenya Competition.
The Julius Rudel/Kurt Weill Conducting Fellowship supports one or more conductors in the early stages of a professional career who are interested in observing and/or assisting a master conductor in the preparation of a performance or production of the works of Kurt Weill and/or Marc Blitzstein.
The Kurt Weill Foundation sponsors a Kurt Weill/Lotte Lenya Artist with the College Light Opera Company in Cape Cod, MA. The Foundation provides funding for a performer on the roster of CLOC's summer musical theater festival who has been selected from previous finalists, semi-finalists, or winners of Emerging Talent Awards of the Lotte Lenya Competition.
The Kurt Weill Foundation offers funding for early-career directors and choreographers who have been selected to be part of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation Observership Program to observe important productions of stage works by Kurt Weill or Marc Blitzstein.
