Studio Grants Application

I would like to apply for a Director’s Studio Grant for the* competition held *. I understand that due to a generous sponsorship by the Lagoon Corporation and other charitable anonymous Corporate donors that I can receive a grant of up to 10% of all pre-registration fees paid by me and my students.

I understand that the Grant has restricted use requirements and I agree to abide by those restrictions as outlined below:

1. The financial grant is given exclusively to the director who has signed this application.

2. Studio Grants are to be used for the improvement of a studio or arts program. Such use would include teacher and director professional development including transportation, lodging, food, and fees (workshops, training, classes, subscriptions, memberships, videos, etc.), studio enhancements (floors, sound equipment, etc.), music library improvement and other general studio or program improvements.

3. Grant money is issued to the director and can not be distributed to any other party but must be used for the express purpose of improving and enhancing the studio or arts program at the sole discretion of the director.

I realize that Director’s Studio Grants will be awarded at the sole discretion of the grant committee including the competition promoters and directors. Generally, grants will be given according to the following guidelines:

1. All registration fees must be paid in ONE check (except fees submitted on individual registration forms), on or before the pre-registration deadline. To meet the pre-registration deadline, the check must be mailed and postmarked on or before the deadline. Any late postmark may result in part or none of the studio grant to be issued. SEND REGISTRATION EARLY!

2. Registration fees must clear the bank. A studio's check that comes back with "insufficient funds" or is unable to clear the bank, will be cause for forfeiture of a studio grant (and immediate repayment if already received). The director will be notified of the "bounced" check and arrangements will be made for payment.

3. Except for unusual, rare circumstances, registration changes are made before the competition. Unusual, rare circumstances include unforeseen, last minute changes and emergencies only. The America On Stage staff desires each director insure that their studio is registered correctly so as to avoid costly time corrections at the competition. Each studio will receive in the mail a list of confirmed registrations. We require directors to review and correct any errors by the registration correction deadline listed on the confirmation or on the website at

4. Other requirements may be considered by the grant committee.

I understand that I will be considered for the grant immediately following the competition and will be notified by mail within 15 days of my application status if accepted. If a director’s studio grant is awarded, a check will be issued in my name and my cashing the check will be considered my acceptance of any and all conditions.
