NOV 2016

We are so happy to announce the return of this amazing program! 

Fringe Scholarships, created in 2016, exist to expand and diversify the pool of artists producing work at the Hollywood Fringe Festival. The inaugural program offered free registrations to five Hollywood Fringe productions, and the 2017 Fringe Scholarships program has expanded thanks to a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts.

We will award 10 scholarships for Festival 2017, each of which includes:

* Free registration for one Hollywood Fringe production

* Three free performances at a Hollywood Fringe Scholarship venue. Special rules apply. Please click here for full details. 

* A Fringe mentor—an experienced Hollywood Fringe participant who will guide you through the process

* Marketing and networking opportunities as a member of the Fringe community

Fringe Scholarships are available to first-time Hollywood Fringe producers who self-identify as contributing to the ethnic, cultural, racial, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability diversity of the Fringe community.

Fringe Scholarships will be awarded to ten individuals after review by our scholarship committee, a jury of previous Fringe participants. For details on the selection process click here.

Applications are due February 10, 2017. Fringe scholarships will be awarded in early March. Details for the 2017 Fringe Scholarships can be found here.

Fringe Veterans can participate by being a Fringe Mentor. As a Fringe Mentor, you will be paired with a scholarship recipient and will exist as their go-to Fringe friend. All Fringe Mentors will receive an ad in the 2017 Hollywood Fringe guide to promote their projects. All mentors must agree to specific criteria. to learn more and apply to be a Fringe Mentor click this link.
