SNL SCHOLARSHIP Application Summer 2022
Receive email updates on news regarding diversity opportunities at the Upright Citizens Brigade

The Upright Citizens Brigade is excited to partner with “Saturday Night Live” to offer scholarships to students who represent diverse backgrounds.  This scholarship will allow these students to complete core and advanced classes in improvisation, character work, and sketch writing.

A diverse committee representing UCB performers and writers will select outstanding applicants for a final interview round. Four performers and four writers will be selected for the scholarship.  Additionally, “SNL” will be engaged in this process and the development of these students once they begin their work at UCB.  These scholarship recipients will also have direct entry to submit an audition tape or sketch packet to “SNL,” which is an incredible opportunity!

UCB is committed to providing opportunities for underrepresented communities in our school and on our stages. As one of the premier training grounds for future comedy professionals, it is essential for UCB to lead in this area.  “SNL’s” financial commitment to this endeavor, and the access it is providing for the scholarship recipients, are massive boosts to UCB’s efforts.
8 Students will receive:

- The scholarship includes class credits for Improv, Sketch Writing, Character, or Elective classes (either online or in-person).
- Guidance from UCB Staff and SNL Casting
- Ability to directly submit an audition or packet to SNL upon program completion.
