The New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts invites you to nominate your high school’s upcoming Fall or Spring play or musical for our Rising Star Scholarship Program!

Rising Star is NYCDA’s way of recognizing outstanding high school students’ performances, with a scholarship to our 2-year Degree program or 4-week Summer Intensive. 

Fill out our Nomination Form using the button below, and tell us about your high school’s Fall or Spring production. If your school’s production is selected, an NYCDA recruiter will attend a performance of the show.

The cast of the show will have a chance to be awarded scholarships to our Degree Programs in the amount of either $15,000 or $10,000, or scholarships to our Summer Intensive programs in the amount of $1,000.

All cast members, no matter the size of their role, are considered for a scholarship.

Complete the Nomination Form with your high school production’s details.

We will be in touch with your director to finalize the details of attending your production if your nomination is selected.

We look forward to seeing your work!
