Richard Porter Leach Fellowship

For ESTABLISHED PERFORMING ARTISTS, undergraduate students only.

The Richard Porter Leach Fellowship allows active and established performing artists to pursue a college degree while continuing to practice their craft. To be considered as a Richard Porter Leach Fellow, an applicant must be a matriculated undergraduate student. This award may be renewed as long as the student remains active in his or her craft, continuously enrolled, and in good academic standing.

Leach Fellows must have an established performance reputation. The application requires a letter of nomination from the director or manager of a performing company – or other established member of the theater, dance or music community who knows the applicant’s work well – and by two additional references, including the current coach, mentor or teacher, if possible.

The Leach Fellowship covers all tuition and fees and up to $200 per term for required books. Applications will be accepted through October 31, and recipients notified prior to the beginning of the spring term.
