The Playhouse promotes lifelong learning with a special scholarship fund.
Alan Furlan Memorial Scholarship Fund
The Alan Furlan Scholarship of Sunset Playhouse, established in 1982 to provide financial assistance to Sunset volunteers, is accepting applications. Sunset believes that one of the purposes of a community theater is to provide experience opportunities for its members through volunteerism, performance, design, education, and support. Because the Playhouse relies on the talents of its volunteers and is only successful because of the many selfless hours given in all areas of production, this scholarship is just one way the organization recognizes and rewards that dedication.
Named for Alan Furlan, Sunset’s Artistic and Managing Director from 1960 to 1988, these grants are supported through a variety of means, including gifts and donations from our audiences, members, corporate sponsors, and the community. The Alan Furlan Scholarship is awarded to Sunset volunteers who are beginning their college experience, continuing their college experience, or enrolling in continuing education opportunities. The Scholarship Fund is administered by the Scholarship Committee and the Director of the Sunset Playhouse School for the Arts and is awarded based on the following criteria:
· Volunteerism at Sunset Playhouse, including impact on the applicant’s life experience.
· Future goals in giving back to the community.
· Recommendations from peers, teachers, and Sunset volunteers.
· Character traits of the applicant exemplifying those of its honoree, Alan Furlan.
The amount of each award will vary based on available funds and the applicant’s circumstances. Money is paid directly to the institution and will only be applied to tuition. Generally, the award is for one year, but recipients may reapply for additional scholarships in succeeding years. Age is not a factor in determining awards.
Applications are due June 22, 2024.
Applicants will be notified no later than July 1, 2024. Awards will be presented on July 11 @ 7:30 pm before the opening night performance of our summer musical CHORUS LINE.
