Applications are open for the 2018 Magnet Diversity Scholarships

Magnet Theater is pleased to announce that applications are open for the 2018 Magnet Diversity Scholarships. The goal of the scholarships is to create opportunities for people to study improv so that the Magnet population more accurately reflects the city we live in, both on stage and in the classroom.

Those selected will receive full program scholarships for Magnet's improv program, covering Level One through Level Four. Contingent upon acceptance, Level Five and Team Performance Workshop will also be included. Due to the limited number of full scholarships and the expected number of applicants, applications will be competitive. We encourage applicants who were not awarded a scholarship last year to re-apply.

The Magnet Diversity Scholarship Program is aimed at increasing our diversity of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, and age. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to apply as the scholarships are open to those who have never studied at Magnet, as well as to those who have partially completed the program. Up to $30,000 worth of scholarships will be awarded at the conclusion of the selection process.

Applications are now open and can be filled out by clicking here. The application includes general information, and some short essay questions.


Applications are due Monday, August 27th, by midnight.

There will be a delightful Open House at Magnet Theater on Saturday, August 11th from 12 – 3 pm, open to all. Prospective applicants are encouraged to attend to meet with current Magnet performers and Diversity Scholars. There will be drinks, snacks, and an informal Diversity Jam for those interested to improvise on stage.

Interviews, for those selected, will take place the Wednesday, September 5th through Sunday, September 9th. Please note that not all applicants will be selected for an interviews, however, everyone will be informed whether or not they will receive an interview by Tuesday, September 4th.
