Chicago Summer Intensives Scholarships

A limited number of scholarships to The Second City Training Center are available each summer. Scholarships are dispensed in various amounts. The maximum scholarship amount covers one week of Improv & Writing Intensives. Some Specialty Intensives may not be eligible for scholarships. Scholarships can be used for 5-day Intensives tuition ONLY. Funds cannot be used toward travel, housing or other expenses, or toward other classes.

Scholarship applications are due by Monday, April 1, 2019. Students will be notified of their status by May 15, 2019. Places will be reserved for all applicants in up to two of their desired classes (i.e. Improv 1 & Writing 1) until the scholarships are awarded. Any students not offered a scholarship will be given the opportunity to retain their place in the class by paying the full tuition. Students awarded partial scholarships will be responsible for the remaining portion of their tuition to ensure a spot in their desired section.
