Reaching the highest levels in the performing arts requires dedication and talent. This achievement also takes money for training, transportation and other expenses. Thanks to a partnership between the Cromwell Trust and the Community Foundation, aspiring artists of any age can apply for a scholarship to cover some of these costs.
Keith and Ronald Cromwell, the brothers behind the Cromwell Trust, have seen the benefits of additional training for both youngsters and adults. They also know of cases where aspiring performers, due to financial limitations, missed the chance to pursue a college education, additional training or other career development.
Whether you want to pursue a college-level degree in the arts, participate in a development workshop or camp, or other artistic training opportunities to grow your own performance career, you may qualify for a scholarship through the Cromwell Trust Fund of the Community Foundation.
