After reviewing over 1300 applications, we are thrilled to announce the recipients of a new scholarship for diverse comedic talent in partnership with Saturday Night Live!
The creation of the SNL Scholarship, announced in October, was designed to grant comedians at varying levels of experience the opportunity to further their professional development at The Second City. In addition to receiving performance and writing training with us, recipients will be connected directly with SNL talent executives and have direct entry to submit an audition tape or sketch packet to SNL for the landmark show.
