Scholarships & Tuition Assistance

We provide scholarships & tuition assistance to students

Available Scholarships

The Desmond Heeley Scholarship honors the legendary designer who worked for the Stratford festival for 57 seasons and inspired all our teaching artists. An award of $500 is given to a student enrolled in our five-week Theatre Production Arts program.

The Glenn Elliott Scholarship is named after teaching artist and prop maker Glenn Elliott who worked backstage at the Stratford Festival for 36 seasons. Up to $500 is awarded to one or two students enrolled in at least two summer courses.

Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance is awarded to students who would benefit from our courses but find tuition fees prohibitive. Youth between the ages of 16 and 30 are welcome to apply, as well as those who don’t have the means to pay in full.

The rules of application are:

  • Letter from the applicant about their theatre experience, interest and goals, as well as the need for funding.
  • Letter from a teacher or director supporting the application assuring us of the student’s interest and commitment to theatre as well as their work ethic.

PDF copies of these letters are to be sent, at the same time, to to be forwarded to our scholarship committees.

All applications are welcome. However, there is no guarantee that all those who apply will receive tuition assistance, as funds are limited.
