The Alec Baldwin Drama Scholarship is available to students at the Tisch School of the Arts at the New York University. As a member of the Dean’s Council, Alec Baldwin established an endowed scholarship for students within the Department of Drama in the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University annually to incoming Freshmen.
With no separate scholarship application necessary, besides the standard Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), all new undergraduate students who exhibit high artistic talent, academic achievement, unwavering work ethic, leadership skills, financial need, and meet all admission requirements will be automatically considered.
Alec Baldwin has donated $1 million for the establishment of the Alec Baldwin Drama Scholarship Fund. Scholarship recipients will be named the Alec Baldwin Drama Scholars. Beginning in September 2010, the endowed fund will provide tuition assistance to students who best exhibit these characteristics, and are also in good academic standing, and demonstrate financial need.
Special consideration will be given to students from economically disadvantaged families or who are the first in their families to attend a college or university. As one of the nation’s leading centers of undergraduate and graduate study in the performing, cinematic, and recording arts Tisch offers programs that incorporate state-of-the-art facilities; a collaboratively oriented community of award-winning faculty members; internship opportunities with established professionals; and the incomparable artistic and cultural resources of New York City.
The Alec Baldwin Drama Scholarship Fund will support those students who would not otherwise be able to afford an NYU Tisch education. Applicants for this award apply through the school.
