2020 Magnet Theater Diversity Scholarship Application
Magnet Theater is pleased to announce that applications are now open for the 2020 Magnet Diversity Scholarships.

The Magnet Diversity Scholarship Program was established in 2016 to create opportunities for people to study improv so that the Magnet population more accurately reflects the city we live in, both on stage and in the classroom.

Those selected will receive 6 classes that can be used towards Improv, Musical Improv and/or Sketch Writing (please note at this time, electives are not included with the scholarship). Due to the limited number of full scholarships and the expected number of applicants, applications will be competitive. We encourage applicants who were not awarded a scholarship last year to re-apply.

The Magnet Diversity Scholarship Program is aimed at increasing our diversity of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, and age. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to apply as the scholarships are open to those who have never studied at Magnet, as well as to those who have partially completed the program. Up to $30,000 worth of scholarships will be awarded at the conclusion of the selection process.

This application has two sections: General Information and some short essay questions.

Our hope is that these questions will help us get to know you a bit better. We're imagining a few sentences for each question and they all have a 1000 character cap. If you'd prefer, you can submit a video response instead of a written response; simply paste the link into the response box.

If you have any questions you can reach out at DiversityScholars@magnettheater.com with any questions about the application or the process.
