This program is no longer available. New Troupe Charter Grants, Troupe Reinstatement Grants and Induction Assistance Grants are now a part of the Thespian Relief Grant program.
Need-based International Thespian Society troupe grants were created to expand access to ITS honors, recognition and opportunities for theatre students and provide support for their teachers. ITS is an honor society, and a troupe is made up of the students who have earned induction through quality work in the theatre arts. Membership in an honor society instills students with pride and confidence, affirms the value of their work, and inspires them to continue their efforts. Having an international honor society adds to a school's stature and leads to increased awareness and support for its theatre program.
