Scholarship Applications Now Being Accepted for College-Bound Seniors!

Providence Players of Fairfax Scholarship Program (deadline April 30, 2019)

Emily Adler, 2011 Scholarship Recipient.

As a way of nurturing future theater artists and recognizing the contribution graduating high school seniors have made to the arts community in our region, Providence Players has established a scholarship program that provides scholarships to college-bound students from area high schools. Scholarships are limited each year. This year, we anticipate awarding three scholarships, $1,500 each, to 2019 graduating seniors with a demonstrated commitment to theater arts who have been accepted to a U.S. accredited college or university or conservatory program with an intent to further contribute to theater arts.

Eligible graduating seniors must (1) reside within the school boundaries of Annandale, Fairfax, Falls Church, George Mason, Justice, Marshall, Bishop O’Connell, Trinity Meadow View, Woodson or Yorktown high schools OR (2) have been a member of PPF for at least one year. It is not required that applicants commit to a theater arts major in college, only that they plan on continuing their involvement and contribution to theater arts in the future. Download the 2019 Scholarship Application Form (in Microsoft Word or in Adobe PDF format) to apply.

Applications must be completed and emailed to no later than April 30, 2019. Supplementary materials, including letters of recommendation, listed on the application form must be mailed to Providence Players at the address shown on the application.  Providence Players must receive these supplementary materials by April 30, 2019. Applications will be reviewed by a committee appointed by the Providence Players of Fairfax Board of Directors.  The criteria for the awards shall be as follows:

  • 40% based on the applicant’s past involvement in theater arts and contributions made to theater arts;
  • 10% based on the applicant’s contribution to Providence Players of Fairfax (if any); and
  • 50% based on the applicant’s potential to further contribute to theater arts.

Decisions on the scholarship awards will be announced by June 1, 2019.
