Roger Schuster Improv Scholarship

For those not in a financial position to afford classes, consider applying for the Roger Schuster Improv Scholarship.

Roger was our former student and the very definition of kindness, gentleness, and passion. His passing was a major blow to the Cincinnati improv community. To honor him and to continue his legacy, Coincidence Improv and OTRimprov have co-created the Roger Schuster Improv Scholarship. The scholarship is designed to help provide access to classes for improv enthusiasts who may be financially prevented from taking classes otherwise. The scholarship will be provided to one student per round of classes for each organization.

To apply for this scholarship, answer the following questions (100 words max per each):

1. What is your experience with improv? Why do you want to take classes?
2. What makes you a good member to have as part of an improv group? 
3. How do you embody Roger’s traits of kindness, enthusiasm, and compassion?

Email your responses to by May 23 to be considered for the upcoming Level 1 classes. You can also email any questions you may have to that address. 

Roger was such a wonderful person, and it's truly a privilege to honor his legacy. Thanks to Kelly M. for leading this process as well as to the wonderful folks at OTRimprov.
