Diversity Scholarship / Fellowship Applications Winter 2018

Postby tanouye » Fri Dec 08, 2017 2:16 pm


This page is for information and questions about the UCB Training Center NYC diversity scholarship and fellowships.
Applications are now available online here: https://newyork.ucbtrainingcenter.com/diversity.

Applications are due by 11:59pm on Monday, January 8. Late applications will not be accepted.

We are continuing to offer our new fellowships. These offer all the benefits of a scholarship, but without the financial element. These are in response to some students who expressed a desire to participate more in the diversity scholarship program but did not have financial need and did not want to take scholarships away from applicants with greater financial need. Student should only apply for fellowships if they feel they do not have financial need at this time and are not applying for a scholarship. (Don't apply for both)

This is a new program so you may have questions about it. Hopefully I can answer them! But it's new, so I may not have all the answers.


Here is a list of upcoming free improv, sketch and character shows that you can see in order to complete your application. It will be updated with more December shows as the Hell's Kitchen calendar goes up, and with shows in January once the calendars for both theatres are posted.

Hello, I filled out the application for the Diversity Fellowship prior to the deadline and am wondering if it is still being processed or whether I missed an email on this.

Not sure if its relevant but I am enrolled in improv 401 with Jeremy Bent and a Character Sketch elective with Natasha Vaynblat I am also taking Music Improv at the Magnet and an upcoming "Improv for Sketch" seminar with Kevin McDonald from Kids in the Hall, at Sea Tea Theatre in Hartford.

I turned a youthful 65 a few weeks ago.
