    Application Components:
    -Playwriting resume listing short, one-act and full-length plays written including reading, workshop and production history with performance venues and dates
    -One unpublished full-length play
    -Personal statement: Please describe, in your own words, your views and expectations of your role as a theater artist now and in the future. Please elaborate on your "emerging status" and how you plan to utilize this fellowship

Good Afternoon, I'm currently enrolled in the 4 week summer program at New York Film Academy. I'm also attending the school next fall. I wasn't sure if I could apply for this scholarship because I'm a acting/Film student. What would be my requirements if I could apply? My apologies, my name is Shadai Terry. I live in New London, ct I'm 26. I'm finally going back to school, thank god! I attended in 08' Eastern Connecticut State University right after high school. My mother had 2 of my siblings and I in school at the same time due to the lack of funds I wasn't able to finish . So I kept waiting and praying when will it be the right time to go back to school. Honestly, it's never a right time so I decided to audition for New York Film Academy on Jan 29,2016 and I GOT IN!!! I start in May for the 4 weeks summer program which is 3,500. Just for tuition, that's not room and board included. I started looking up scholarships and grants for the summer and fall. I would like to apply to this scholarship but I'm not sure if I can.

Student Group Cancels Controversial Debate at University of Chicago

February 6, 2018

by Susan Dutca

A controversial immigration debate was canceled this week by a student group at The University of Chicago - a university which "prides itself on protecting free speech, even offensive speech." The Edmund Burke Society, a conservative parliamentary debating society, canceled the debate, claiming it "could not assure an orderly event," particularly following the uproar over how the group had described the event.
