Paying It Forward
Three Pace School of Performing Arts students share their moving testimonials on what it means to be selected for The Kevin Spacey Foundation: America scholarships.
“To know that somebody saw some potential in you and wanted to encourage you to continue, it’s a huge vote of confidence.”—Larissa Jeanniton, BA in Acting-International Performance Ensemble student
“This scholarship has brought me closer to my dreams.”—Jasmine Toney, BFA in Commercial Dance student
“It inspires me to do the same thing, too—to always give back. Sending that elevator down for someone else to get on. I’m ready to step inside. To go up.”—Nicholas Delgado, BFA in Acting for Film, Television, Voice-overs, and Commercials student
Three of five Pace students who were awarded scholarships from the Kevin Spacey Foundation (KSF) to further their education in the performing arts were featured in a video by KSF on the importance of this scholarship and how their dreams are starting to come true. Watch their testimonials.
“These scholarships epitomize our mission to support emerging artists at a crucial stage in their career. We believe in all of the recipients and the whole ethos of Pace,” said Steve Winter, executive director, The Kevin Spacey Foundation: America.
In total, 15 Pace School of Performing Arts (PPA) students have been awarded scholarships and funds from The Kevin Spacey Foundation: America, which aims to train, support, and mentor emerging artists in performing arts and film. Five students earned KSF scholarships and 10 students from PPA’s International Performance Ensemble program received funding to cover expenses to travel abroad where they will present their original works at international arts festivals this summer.
Pace University is the first institution of higher education in the United States to receive scholarships and funding support from The Kevin Spacey Foundation: America.
