Kevin Corrigan Scholarship for Young Actors
Applications for 2019-2020 Scholarship must be submitted by July 15, 2019.
The Kevin Corrigan Scholarship is annually awarded to a passionate young actor interested in learning about acting, growing their imaginations and furthering their artistic pursuits at The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. Kevin Corrigan is a uniquely celebrated actor whose story begins in the Young Actors Program at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute. As he says, “Lee Strasberg’s Young Actor’s Program was like being inside a planetarium–walking through those technicolor red doors into another realm, the knowledge and inspiration I found there, weekly! I went there seeking treasure; I learned that the treasure was inside of me, that my inner life had value, that the real riches in life are inside of us.” Following Kevin Corrigan’s example, the scholarship seeks to inspire the next generation of talent.
The Kevin Corrigan scholarship is open to non-matriculated students in the tri-state area who are entering 2nd-12th grade. Selection is based on a completed application that describes student achievements and interest in further study of acting.
Completed applications, including all supplemental information, must be submitted by July 1st before the start of the Fall semester. Please mail application and requirements to: Young Actors at Strasberg Scholarship, 115 East 15th Street, New York, NY 10003.
