In 2020, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama is set to become a partner organisation of the prestigious Fulbright program. To make this partnership a reality, Central must secure $150,000 in funding to underwrite the inaugural three years of Fulbright Central Scholarships.
A group of generous benefactors has kick-started the fundraising. Michael Grandage (alumnus, Central’s President, and theatre director and producer) has lent his support. We invite you to join them, to help Central launch Fulbright Scholarships, and to donate.
“Today we have a unique opportunity to help American dramatic arts students reap the rewards of a Central education. Central has been accepted into the prestigious Fulbright program - one of the world’s most respected and competitive fellowship programs. By establishing a Fulbright Scholarship at Central, American students will be granted the opportunity to study at the School with free tuition and a living costs stipend.”
Michael Grandage CBE, alumnus, President and theatre director and producer, Artistic Director of the Michael Grandage Company.
We invite donations of any size to Fulbright Central Scholarships. The collection of all donations made will go towards reaching the Scholarships six-figure goal.
Donors living in the United States can claim tax deductions by giving through the British Schools and Universities Foundation (BSUF) which is a 501 C3 charitable organization in the United States.
Every single donation will directly help American students to experience Central’s gold-standard education that will give them the competitive edge needed to become future leaders in the creative industries.
