Applications are due by 5pm on Monday, April 25, 2016.

ODC Theater has partnered with the Kenneth Rainin Foundation to create an eponymous opportunity fund at ODC to support self-producing artists through its open access rental program. The Rainin Foundation has made a commitment of $20,000 per year for three years to support the administration of scholarship subsidies to self-producing artists in ODC Theater’s main stage.

Up to ten artists will be awarded a scholarship to self-produce/rent ODC’s B. Way Theater from May 1, 2016 – December 31, 2017. Applications will be considered and scored by a panel, and the awarded artists will receive a subsidized rental week in the theater. Subsidy scholarships will cover a minimum of 50% of the production space and labor costs for the artists.

Scholarships will be awarded based on artistic merit and need.
