First Kevin Spacey Foundation scholars announced

In spring 2013 Regent’s School of Drama, Film and Media announced an exciting new partnership with the Kevin Spacey Foundation (KSF) to provide six full fee waiver scholarships to study at Regent’s University London on our innovative BA (Hons) Acting and Global Theatre

We are now proud to announce the scholars who will be starting in September 2013. Congratulations to Danilo Antonelli, Collette Freeman, Hilton Leigh, James Lorimer, Dreni Rezari, Elise Van Lil, our first Kevin Spacey Foundation Scholars.

The KSF Scholars were selected in July 2013 following an audition workshop led by KSF Director, Steve Winter. They were part of a group of 25 students, made up of 17 potential candidates and eight current BA (Hons) Acting & Global Theatre students.  

We were very impressed by the commitment, energy, talent and ability shown by all the KSF Scholarship candidates on the audition day, which made it a very tough decision.   

We are very pleased to announce that all students starting on the BA (Hons) Acting and Global Theatre in 2013 will benefit from masterclasses run by Kevin Spacey and additional learning events organised through the Kevin Spacey Foundation with high-profile artists and practitioners.

We look forward to welcoming the six KSF Scholars, KSF Scholarship candidates and new BA (Hons) Acting and Global Theatre students in September.

Note about the Kevin Spacey Foundation Scholarship

In partnership with the Kevin Spacey Foundation, Regent’s University London offers six full-fee waiver scholarships for the  BA (Hons) Acting and Global Theatre.

The BA (Hons) Acting and Global Theatre is a unique programme which enables students to study theatre and culture from around the world and to take part in a Study Abroad semester.  Kevin Spacey was attracted by the university’s commitment to global awareness and cultural understanding, and to the opportunities for young performers from many countries to share their passion for theatre.  

The Kevin Spacey Foundation is based in London and New York and the renowned actor, who is currently Artistic Director of London’s Old Vic Theatre, speaks of his support for the next generation:

”If you’ve been successful in your chosen path, if you’ve been able to realise your ambition, then you are obligated to ‘send the elevator back down’.  That’s why I’ve set up The Kevin Spacey Foundation (KSF).”
