Description: Since 1982 UNIMA-USA has offered over 50 scholarships to underwrite professional puppetry training abroad for American members of UNIMA-USA. Studying in different countries and experiencing different cultures encourages building bridges for international understanding between puppeteers from around the world, a major aim of all UNIMA Centers. The UNIMA-USA scholarship program is intended to help cover tuition fees for American puppeteers who wish to study puppetry outside the U.S. Applicants should be puppeteers who have some professional experience, who have a university degree in puppetry, or who can otherwise demonstrate a serious commitment to the art form. Candidates may use their scholarship at any time of the year, depending on when the courses are being offered. Puppetry training may be undertaken with either a recognized puppetry professional or a professional program outside the U.S. In some cases, an international puppet festival may be considered as a professional program.
