As part of its mission statement, Little Theatre of Virginia Beach (LTVB) believes in investing in educational opportunities for local theater students. LTVB is offering two $500 scholarships to be awarded to high school seniors majoring in drama or theater who are graduating from a South Hampton Roads high school. One scholarship each will be awarded for technical studies and performing arts.
If you are a graduating senior from a South Hampton Roads high school and plan to attend an undergraduate school majoring in Theatre Arts—either as a performer or technical position—you are eligible to apply for this Scholarship! This is a one-time scholarship of $500 and will be awarded to two deserving students. Please note the following:
- A student may apply for both scholarships if fully qualified.
- A student must major in Theatre Arts at the college the student is attending.
- If the college the student is attending does not offer a Theatre Arts major, the student may still apply for one or both scholarships.
The scholarship fund is funded by Little Theatre of Virginia Beach and in part by a donation in honor of Ann Henry, a founding member of LTVB.
TO APPLY: Use the attached application and submit the following by April 26, 2020:
- An essay of no more than two pages explaining how theater has impacted your life and why you are pursuing theater as a major. The essay is an important part of the process. It can highlight any achievements, community or church involvement, or personal philosophy to better judge your qualifications. If the college you are attending does not offer a Theatre Arts major, please indicate how your major field of study is related to a Theatre Arts degree.
Your essay should also include your name, email address and phone number.
Your submission of your application with supporting documents and essay must be received by Sunday, April 26, 2020 in order to be considered.
