Performance is powerful and empowering; it helps all children in many ways including teaching them to take ownership of their own thoughts, stories, talents and abilities. Research suggests that creativity helps children maintain good mental and physical health. There is evidence that participating in the creative arts can improve student literacy and overall academic achievement.
Scholarship eligibility is based on financial need and determined by ability demonstrated by audition. Opportunities are available to all children from the general public. These scholarships may provide the only opportunity for children in need to experience visual and performing arts, offering the children sense of accomplishment, personal locus of control, self-esteem, and a desire to connect with their community. Children interested in A Project Broadway Scholarship must complete a scholarship application and in some cases audition for the artistic director and musical director.
