BIG Diverse Voices Scholarship
The Baltimore Improv Group knows that a variety of voices onstage creates stronger, better comedy. Therefore BIG is passionately committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in our student body. Our Diverse Voices Scholarship was established to help members of underrepresented communities by providing financial aid for People of Color*, Senior Citizens, Veterans, Military Members, differently-abled persons, immigrants, and members of the LGBT community.

BIG’s Diverse Voices Scholarship covers the full tuition of a seven-week class. The scholarships may be applied to any class within BIG’s curriculum. BIG’s scholarships are not explicitly need-based. They are open to any person who identifies with one of our diverse groups. However, we do ask that applicants be mindful of their needs, so that the scholarship we award may benefit students who might not otherwise be able to attend classes.

BIG offers four (4) Diverse Voices Scholarships per session. Our Diverse Voices Scholarship cannot be exchanged or refunded. Scholarship applications must be submitted at least three (3) weeks before the first class of the session. Scholarships are awarded after applications have been reviewed by BIG’s Diversity & Inclusivity Committee and Education Director Michael Hartwell.
