The weekly stipend is taxable. Arena Stage will withhold taxes, making the take home most likely between $450-$480 per week, depending on the fellow's state of residence. Fellows have the option to be covered by Arena Stage’s health insurance, if they wish, at a small cost to the fellow that varies depending on the level of coverage they select. Note that insurance coverage doesn’t start until the fellow has worked for 45 days.
