Now in the third year of the Initiative, the ALW Training Scholarships continue to promote diversity, equity, and access to the arts by bridging the gap between talent and opportunity, creating a stronger pipeline to the professional theatre for promising artists of all backgrounds. The Training Scholarships cover the cost of tuition, room and board, and admin fees associated with summer study and after school training programs.
