PHIT’s Kids & Teens Scholarships are need-based and open to any family who self-identifies such a need. Because we have a limited number of scholarships, we ask that applicants be mindful of their need when considering submitting an application so that the scholarships we award can be given to students who might not otherwise be able to benefit from our classes without support from the theater. If you feel your family is able to afford half tuition, please make a note of that on the application, as it will allow us to spread the scholarship aid even further.
Applications will be accepted and notifications sent out on a rolling basis. In some instances, student award decisions may be deferred until closer to the start of the class session. All scholarship notifications will go out no later than January 10th.
The PHIT Kids & Teens Scholarship cannot be exchanged for money (i.e. if you have already signed up for a class, you can't apply the scholarship and get a refund on your payment).
By answering these optional questions about your child's identity, you help PHIT measure our progress in supporting and sustaining a diverse community. To learn more about PHIT’s diversity initiatives please visit our website’s diversity program page at http://www.phitcomedy.com/diversity/
We recognize that racial and cultural identities are complex and parents views do not always exactly match those of their children. As an alternative to the multiple-choice and short response questions below, we have an open-ended response question at the bottom of this section where we welcome more detail on your family’s racial-ethnic identities.
