The Next Festival offers generous scholarships to enable students to attend regardless of financial circumstances. Deeply committed to helping the artists of tomorrow, the festival maintains a unique pay-what-you-can model to ensure that participants can attend for a price they can afford. We are very proud to have met 100% of student need each season.
Because the festival is small (only 20 students), your gift today will have a huge impact. Your tax-deductible gift will help support our wonderful artists and help us continue to create innovative programming.
