Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative Announces Launch of Training Scholarships
The program will help young people launch careers in theater.
The American Theatre Wing has announced that the new Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative has launched its second initiative program, Training Scholarships. The program bridges the gap between talent and opportunity, and creating a strong pipeline to the professional theater for promising artists of all backgrounds. The deadline to apply is January with final notifications made by April 2017.
Applicants should identify their planned course of study and the program or organization where they plan to attend before beginning the application. Grant funding can be used for private or group voice, dance, or music lessons; theater training programs that stand alone or are housed in professional theater settings; theater training camps; and conferences or special training opportunities.
Public middle and high school students who demonstrate talent and ability in the theater arts, but have a lack of resources to receive high level training prior to college are eligible to apply. The student's area of focus can be from any aspect of theater from performance, to design, to writing, to stage management, and more. Applicants are required to demonstrate their talent through an audition video or portfolio, along with a written application.
