LSTFI Scholarship Program
In 1969, Lee and Anna Strasberg founded The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute to train and nurture present and future generations of aspiring actors. Today, our scholarship program serves to honor this vision and support students who demonstrate a great passion and potential for a career in the performing arts.
Our AlumniOur alumni have found incredible success in the fields of Film, Television, & Stage. Of the many students who called Lee Strasberg their teacher, or the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute their home, they all honor his legacy with their incredible work and talent.
“What separates the Lee Strasberg Institute from the usual impression one gets from a ‘conservatory,’ is its impact on the maturing artist. The Institute gives young talent the tools not only to be a great actor in the present, but to evolve and adapt until the ‘Method’ becomes second nature. When you can apply what you learned five, ten or twenty years ago, into your living craft, then you can appreciate how successful your training was. This is the type of training that the Institute offers.”
