The funding can be made in incremental payments They can designate which of the 4 universities the scholarship should go to. The board of directors, jointly with the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, shall determine the amount of that fund to be awarded in scholarships each year.

What our Scholarship students are saying.

This scholarship gave me the opportunity to focus on growing as a theatre artist and preparing for the professional world, while helping me fund my last year of college.
“The freedom this aid grants me is something I can’t have harmoniously in the working world. Support through this connection that we forged at UMKC can last a lifetime. It is how we will find work, resources, strength, and empowerment. The people who we will graduate with will not be our competition, they will be our collaborators and comrades. And that’s the real value of this scholarship."

Not only is it an absolute honor, and a privilege to be able to receive the Dodie Myers Brown Scholarship from the New Theatre Guild Foundation, but it also helps to relieve me from the financial burden that accompanies a college education. I am so excited to be able to continue my studies in theatre, with the help of you all at the New Theatre. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
