The application window for the 2017 Technical Intern and Vocal scholarships has closed. Thank you for your interest! Application materials for 2018 will be made available in December.
Each year, the Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Houston awards a $1600 scholarship to a promising vocal student attending a college or university in the Houston area, or to a student from the Houston area attending a college or university elsewhere. High school seniors entering college in the fall are also eligible. This scholarship money is provided to the Society through a grant from the Lillian Kaiser Lewis Foundation, and is intended for a student majoring in vocal performance. When financially able, the Society may award an additional scholarship of lesser value to a second, strongly qualified candidate.
Each year, the Society offers a technical internship, along with a $1600 scholarship, to a Houston area college student of a Theater Management program. The student spends June and July assisting the Artistic and Stage Directors with the Society's summer production, gaining valuable experience in the workings and production of a large budget show.
The Linder Fund
The Robert & Diana Linder Scholarship Fund was established not to provide for academic needs, but rather for the special needs of university-age/young professional singers, pianists, and conductors – the three disciplines most closely associated with the Society and our productions. Money is granted by the Board of Directors on a discretionary basis and not tied to annual giving like other scholarship funds. Anticipated uses for funds include workshop or travel costs, competition entry fees, master classes, etc. The Linder Fund may be granted at any time during the year. Please contact
