The arts are essential to a vibrant culture, a thriving economy, and a creative society.
Unfortunately, there’s often a lack of support for programs like music and theater, and many students are discouraged from pursuing their passions as a result. First-generation students and minority students face particular challenges when pursuing the arts due to a lack of mentorship and financial resources.
This scholarship seeks to support first-generation BIPOC students who are pursuing careers in music or theater so they can find success through their passions.
Any first-generation, BIPOC undergraduate or graduate student who is pursuing a degree in theater or music may apply for this scholarship.
