Litfin Performing Arts Scholarship

The Litfin Scholarship Award is currently on hiatus indefinitely.  We hope to resume awards in a future season.

The Litfin Performing Arts Scholarship is made possible through a generous gift from the Michael Litfin Trust. Michael Litfin (1945 - 2008) served the City of Palo Alto for 31 years as the Assistant Director of the Palo Alto Children's Theatre.

What is the amount of the awards?
In most cases, awards will vary in the range of $1,000-$5,000 each.
