As part of our mission of Comedy for Everyone, Big Canvas offers two annual full scholarships and a number of internship opportunities for students enrolled. 


Big Canvas offers two annual full scholarships for one individual student to go through all levels. No volunteering is required, but to be considered students must fill out an application. These applications are available online. If you'd like to request a hard copy, they must be requested and returned before the deadline. Big Canvas's Board of Directors will determine scholarship recipients and scholarship holders will be notified no later than two weeks before the next level one starts. If you are already enrolled and have applied for and receive a scholarship, any Big Canvas classes forthcoming will be free of charge for one calendar year.

Big Canvas also offers a select number of internships for students enrolled in levels 2-5 and continuing education. Interns are required to volunteer five hours over each 8-week course. Interns help with things like ticket collection at shows, videotaping performances, and fundraising. In addition to volunteering five hours per level, each intern is responsible for signing an intern agreement and self-reporting their hours prior to that corresponding level's class show. If the requirements are not met, they will NOT be eligible for future internships opportunities.
