Fund a scholarship for a college-bound Thespian

“The Amy Bennett Foundation continues Amy’s dreams beyond her passing. We are also spreading Amy’s joy for the arts and theatre through scholarship funds that enrich the lives of youth and college performers.”

-Pat & Terry Bennett, The Amy Bennett Foundation, funders of the annual Amy Bennett Musical Theatre Scholarship

The Educational Theatre Foundation honors the academic and artistic achievements of young people by providing financial support to help them further their education. Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of academic merit, financial need, and personal attributes such as leadership ability, work ethic, teamwork, character, and experience in different aspects of theatre.

The scholarship program depends on charitable donations from individual and corporate friends of theatre education who understand the transformative power of theatre and want to directly impact the life of a child.
