The Paper Street Improv Scholarship is an annual scholarship that provides one young improviser with a year of professional improvisational training.

The recipient will be able to take any classes offered by Paper Street Theatre throughout the year from September 1st, 2022 until August 31, 2023.
“I've been teaching high school students improv since I was a high school student. I think having access to improv when you're in those formative years is incredibly important. I started this scholarship to give graduating improvisers the opportunity to study improv seriously – an opportunity I wish I’d had. My goal is to show young performers that improv is an art-form, and support their development.” - Artistic Director Dave Morris
