Here’s How to Apply to NBC’s $500,000 High School Theatre Grant


Attention Washington D.C.-area high schools: NBC is partnering with the Educational Theatre Foundation to award 50 U.S. high schools with $10,000 grants for their theatre programs.

NBC's new initiative is called R.I.S.E America (Recognizing & Inspiring Student Expression) and seeks to enhance schools nationwide through the arts by revitalizing or improving their theatre programs.

To apply, high schools must submit a short video, essay and recommendation letter online, sharing how their students, school and/or community would benefit with a $10,000 grant for their theatre program. Winning high schools will be announced the first week of March.
