Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative--Applications for the University Scholarships

The American Theatre Wing is committed to fostering a future generation of theatre makers that reflects the diversity and dynamism of America as a whole. With the generous support of The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, The Wing is promoting diversity, equity, and access to the arts through these University Scholarships to bridge the gap between talent and opportunity. The primary goal of these scholarships is to provide opportunities for underserved public high school seniors who come from populations historically underrepresented in our industry; who demonstrate economic need and exceptional talent, but have a lack of resources to attend college to study theatre.

The student's area of focus can be from any aspect of theatre from performance, to design, to writing, to stage management, and others. Through the University Scholarships, we hope to create a strong pipeline to the professional theatre for promising artists of all backgrounds.

Many of his values are more relevant than ever. The Roger Williams Scholarship was conceived of and funded by philanthropists Letitia and John Carter and is managed by the Rhode Island Foundation.

NUMBER AND AMOUNT OF SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS:  The program will award three scholarships per year. The maximum scholarship will be $20,000 per year per student. The awards are renewable for up to three consecutive year following the first award.
