Theatre Scholarships

"Let me begin by emphatically thanking the Shimbergs, whose scholarship allowed me to survive and take opportunities that I would not have been able to before. Without the scholarships and grants available to me, I would have never been able to have the intense classes with these artists. Opportunities like this are rare in most other schools unless you are a graduate student."

- Excerpt taken from a speech given by TheatreUSF graduate Joanna Strange.
