Albuquerque Theatre Guild seeks applications for
2018–2019 Youth Scholarship Program

The Albuquerque Theatre Guild (ATG) is an umbrella organization of live theatre companies, theatre practitioners, and theatre lovers dedicated to making the Albuquerque area's rich live theatre scene better known to both residents and visitors alike. Since 2009, ATG has awarded annual scholarships to youth interested in participating in one of the many theatre education programs offered by ATG’s member organizations. Last year, ATG was able to give 20 scholarships for up to $200 each. This year ATG is excited to award 30 scholarships!

Thanks to a generous grant from the Lineberry Foundation, 30 Albuquerque youths will receive up to $200 each, to be used expressly for tuition in a theatre education class during the June 1, 2018 to May 31, 2019 time period. The program is structured for youth ages 5 to 17.
The selected scholarship recipients will attend a special awards ceremony hosted by Mayor Tim Keller’s office.


Applications must be received by ATG no later than Friday, April 20, 2018.  
Students will be notified by Friday, May 4, 2018.
