VYT Senior Scholarship

Established in 2022, the VYT Senior Scholarship annually recognizes a high school senior who has demonstrated a love of theatre and contributed as an enthusiastic and responsible member of a VYT show(s). This scholarship will be awarded each year in June to a VYT senior attending college in the fall.

Candidates submit a completed application and short essay for consideration. The essay prompt asks the submitter to discuss the impact of the theatre arts on their life. Applicants do not have to be studying theatre in college to apply. Applicants must have been involved as an actor or production assistant in at least one VYT show.

The annual scholarship amount is $1000 and can be awarded to one or more applicants. The board can also grant additional Senior Scholarships at its discretion.

Applications are available here on this website in January each year and are due to VYT by May 31.

The board of VYT announces the scholarship winner annually at the final production of VYT’s spring show. The first VYT Senior Scholarship will be awarded in June 2023.
