Samuel H. Scripps Scholarships


Update: We are currently not accepting applications for Scripps Scholarships. Please check back with us in January 2021 for updated information regarding this initiative.


Part of Scholarships & Fellowships

Have you seen a BAM school-time performance or participated in a BAM Education program? Two-year, four-year, and graduate student scholarships are awarded each year to students who have participated in BAM Education programs and are now pursuing higher education in the fields of performance, presentation, or arts administration.

This scholarship was established to honor the memory of former BAM trustee Samuel Scripps, a spirited world traveler and a generous patron of the arts whose life was dedicated to supporting theater and dance.

All students who have participated in BAM’s In-School Residencies, School-Time Performances, Virtual Programs or free After-School Programs are eligible to apply for a Scripps Scholarship. Sign up for a program today!
