WIT announces creation of diversity scholarship

Washington Improv Theater is happy to announce the creation of our first diversity scholarship.

WIT committed to increasing diversity among the voices and talent in DC’s improv community and we believe this work starts in the classes program. The goal of this scholarship is to help enable more diverse communities to pursue improv, which would mutually benefit the improv community and the individuals selected. The students selected for this scholarship program will cover the cost of the entire curriculum Levels 1 thru 5, contingent upon meeting the learning objectives required to complete each class.

WIT is specifically looking to increase the diversity of race and ethnicity in our classes program. We are excited to be able to offer the full program to motivated, eligible students. The scholarship is equivalent to $1395 (plus an additional $279 if a student is asked to repeat a course). You can apply for the scholarship at any time, but there are specific deadlines to be considered for each class session.

If you are a current student, you are welcome to apply! The scholarship is not retroactive but will cover future class costs for the core curriculum.
