Dream Out Loud Scholarship

“Dream Out Loud” Scholarships

provide post-secondary education scholarships to current and future artists in the LGBTQ community. We understand the importance of quality education and have created our scholarships to enable students to better focus on their career goals. Our scholarships are specifically for students who identify as LGBTQ, pursuing any area of film, theatre, dance, or music. Since we want to encourage and empower our scholarship recipients, we also provide a professional mentor for a full school year. This is a professional, active artist in the LGBTQ community who will work with you one-on-one to further your creativity and help you achieve your career goals.

The Dream Out Loud Scholarship will return in Fall 2021.
