Young Actors Scholarships


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. 


Dear Students and Prospective Students,

As news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, we wanted to take time to reassure our community that The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute is monitoring circumstances on a regular basis. We are committed to the well-being and education of our students, faculty and staff. Following in step as other universities and schools, we have transitioned to holding classes remotely in ways that are meaningful.

The Spring 2020 term will begin on April 20th.

These are unique times worthy of serious thought and implementing measures of caution. We trust that our Community will, as always, join together, to find new ways to collaborate, innovate, and continue doing the work we care so deeply about.

Please be sure to follow us on social media for events and updates during this time where we're all Safer at Home.
