Support South Carolina's most promising young actors as they learn the foundational skills needed to pursue careers on stage, screen, and television
The South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts & Humanities Foundation supports the Governor's School Drama Department by funding needs not met by state operating funds, such as underwriting special programs, projects, and experiences offered at the school by providing financial and other assistance directly to the students.
Guests artists play a valuable role in the classroom and make the Governor's School experience so unique compared to other schools. In the 2022-2023 school year, the Foundation funded over $10,000 to bring professional guest artists to campus including actor Brandon Micheal Hall ('11 Alum), director/choreographer/educator Michael McCrary (summer drama program alum), composer Mary Fishburne Hayden (summer music program alum) and choreographer Sarah Hamilton ('10 Alum).
As a residential arts school, students have unique needs and opportunities, and the Foundation is committed to assuring access to those opportunities to all students. The Foundation is able to support special learning experiences and other costs. Last school year, the Foundation helped pay for student auditions in Chicago and New York, faculty and student headshots, and student activities.
