To that end, the foundation is accepting applications from young foreign-born theater professionals for the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise in theater.

Playwrights/book writers, directors, actors, designers (sets, costumes, lights, projections/video, sound, and/or puppetry), composers, lyricists, and choreographers are encouraged to apply.

To be eligible, applicants must have been born outside the United States, not be more than 38 years old as of December 31, 2015, be a naturalized citizen or permanent resident (green card holder) of the United States, intend to pursue a professional career in the United States, and not be a past winner or finalist of the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise.
