Scholarship Contributions

The Florida Studio Theatre School offers classes year-round for students of all ages and experience levels in acting, dancing, singing, playwriting, and improvisation. FST’s mission includes a strong commitment to making theatre accessible and affordable to as many people as possible. In keeping with that mission, FST’s scholarship program covers enrollment costs for 15% of students every year. Individual scholarships vary and can cover a single class or a full year of classes to ensure that all students interested in learning the art of theatre are able to do so.
