Thanks to our generous sponsors at UBCP/ACTRA. We now have the annual "UBCP/ACTRA EdTA Canada Thespian Troupe Start-up Grant", worth approximately $600. This grant will help an inner city school in a lower socioeconomic area within Canada afford to start a thespian troupe of their own within the International Thespian Society.
If you are a drama teacher or administrator at a middle or high school in BC and would like to apply for the "UBCP/ACTRA EdTA Canada Troupe Start-up Grant" please find the link on this page. Applications are currently open!
