Receiving this scholarship will allow me to continue to stay focused on my theatre education and make the most of my final year at East Carolina University. Thank you so very much to the NCTC Scholarship Committee!” – Matthew Johnson

 

“Thank you NCTC for awarding me this scholarship; it means the world to me and my family. It is amazing and so reassuring to see that organizations like NCTC are supporting students like me who have the intrinsic need to tell stories on stage and make a difference in the world.
