Philly Improv Theater recognizes that the cost of our Kids & Teens classes can pose a barrier to entry for some of our students and their families. In an effort to overcome this barrier, PHIT will award a number of need-based scholarships to study in our Kids & Teens program in each of our sessions throughout the year.

PHIT’s Kids & Teens Scholarships are need-based and open to any family who self-identifies such a need. Because we have a limited number of scholarships, we ask that applicants be mindful of their need when considering submitting an application so that the scholarships we award can be given to students who might not otherwise be able to benefit from our classes without support from the theater. If you feel your family is able to afford half tuition, please make a note of that on the application, as it will allow us to spread the scholarship aid even further.

Applications will be accepted and notifications sent out on a rolling basis. In some instances, student award decisions may be deferred until closer to the start of the class session. For 2020 the latest an application for a scholarship will be accepted for each session is below:

Winter 2020 – January 5th (award notification emailed by January 7th)
Spring 2020 – March 15th (award notification emailed by March 17th)
Summer Camp 2020 – July 1st (award notification emailed by July 3rd)
Fall 2020 – September 28th (award notification emailed by September 30th)

The PHIT Kids & Teens Scholarship cannot be exchanged for money (i.e. if you have already signed up for a class, you can’t apply the scholarship and get a refund on your payment).
