Suffield Players Scholarships

Suffield Players is proud to present the Robert Alcorn Memorial Arts Scholarship (for post High School study) and the Eugene Biggio Dramatic Arts Scholarship (for K-12 study).  The Robert Alcorn Memorial Arts Scholarship was established in 1981 to honor our first President and his passion for community theatre and recognizes post-high school study for students of any age who wish to pursue the performing arts.  The Eugene Biggio Memorial Drama Scholarship was established in 1989 to honor the passion of one of our past Presidents and recognizes undergraduate study for students K 12 studying dramatic arts.

Applications are available at the opening of the winter show and are due by May 15 of the same year.

Donations may be made to the Scholarship Fund directly online at our website or by using the forms in our show programs, newsletters or brochure.  Please make sure to note “For Scholarship Fund.”

Each year, Suffield Players holds special events to help raise funds for that year's scholarships, including the “Barnes & Noble Book Fair” held around the time of the Holiday Benefit.

Scholarships are usually awarded at the Suffield Players Annual Meeting held in June.
