Advance diversity in the performing arts

PAISOC aims to increase the participation of people of color in performing arts programs. We lower the barrier to entry into these programs by providing scholarships to fund their tuition and other program-related expenses. We empower them by training them to become leaders in the industry and sharing their stories.
