Kevin Corrigan Scholarship

The Kevin Corrigan Scholarship is annually awarded to a passionate young actor interested in learning about acting, growing their imaginations and furthering their artistic pursuits at The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute. Kevin Corrigan is a uniquely celebrated actor whose story begins in the Young Actors Program at The Institute. 

“Lee Strasberg’s Young Actor’s Program was like being inside a planetarium–walking through those technicolor red doors into another realm, the knowledge and inspiration I found there, weekly! I went there seeking treasure; I learned that the treasure was inside of me, that my inner life had value, that the real riches in life are inside of us,”

Kevin Corrigan

Following Kevin Corrigan’s example, the scholarship seeks to inspire the next generation of talent.

The Kevin Corrigan scholarship is open to non-matriculated students in the tri-state area who are entering or currently enrolled in 2nd-12th grade. Selection is based on a completed application that describes student achievements and interest in further study of acting.

Scholarship recipients should expect to begin their studies at the start of the Fall semester, which commences in September.

The recipient of the Kevin Corrigan Scholarship will attend the Young Actors program on Saturdays for a full academic year (Fall, Winter & Spring). At the end of each term, the faculty and staff will assess the student to ensure they are in good standing and have been attending classes.

Please mail application and requirements to:  Young Actors at Strasberg Scholarship, 115 East 15th Street, New York, NY 10003.

Completed applications, including all supplemental information, must be submitted by July 15th before the start of the Fall semester.
