KC Scholarship Fund Application
« on: Nov 24, 2007, 10:51 am »
The KC Mehl Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established in memory of Stage Manager KC Mehl who died on March 19, 2005 at the age of 21.  Before her death, KC had begun a promising career as a Stage Manager in Philadelphia’s theatrical community. She had fostered mentor relationships with several experienced Stage Managers in order to learn the delicate art of Stage Management.  Although she was not yet an official member of the Stage Managers’ Association, she was active with Philadelphia’s SMA events and showed a commitment to the ideals of the SMA. This Scholarship is meant to encourage such attributes in others.

This fund would provide a one-time gift to young Stage Managers to cover the initiation fee and the membership fee of a one year Associate Membership in the SMA. Any person who demonstrates an intent to pursue a career as a professional Stage Manager is eligible for Associate Membership. An Associate Member may attend all meetings and gatherings, and serve on committees, but has no voting privileges. 
 
Stage Managers who are 19 – 22 years of age should send their Stage Management resume, one letter of recommendation from a professional Stage Manager* and a letter of commitment to a career in Stage Management to David Coffman at davidlcoffman@gmail.com.
Documents should be sent in a format that is PC compatible.
Please put [SMA] KC Scholarship Fund in the subject line. 
Application deadline for 2008 is Thursday, December 20, 2007 at 11:59pm
