The Fund for College Auditions

Program Description

The Fund for College Auditions is a New York City-based 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 2019 that offers financial support and college guidance to acting and musical theatre students with limited resources who want to audition for post-high school training programs, especially those who identify with groups that are historically and currently underrepresented in theatre, film, and television.

Through supporting qualified young theatre artists who may not otherwise have access to the resources needed to excel in the extremely competitive audition process for college-level training, we advocate for diversity, equity, and belonging in college-level theatre training programs. We believe our mission of providing support for those seeking theatre training will aid in the diversification of theatre, film, and television at the professional level and a significant reduction of the systemic inequalities that persist in those fields.
