Advancing A New Generation Of Performing Artists

“For performers without full-time employment or generous compensation, student debt can be the kiss of death…. We are deeply grateful to the Foundation for [helping] new generations of actors, dancers, and musicians to become leaders in the performing arts in the twenty-first century.”
— Joseph Polisi, Juilliard President

The Juilliard School attracts the finest talent from all over the world. Those accepted are trained by inspiring professors who are active professionals in their industry. In 1985 Jerry Greene, who served on The Juilliard Board of Directors, became the first Trustee to initiate scholarships in all three divisions: music, dance and drama. The growth of the original fund along with subsequent JLGreene contributions has enabled not only general scholarship support, but also full tuition coverage to students chosen by the faculty.

JLGreene is proud to support the talented, handpicked and accomplished Greene Scholars. Even while still studying, Greene Scholars have and will perform with professional organizations such as The New York Philharmonic, The Metropolitan Opera, The Lar Lubovitch Dance Company and the Brian Brooks Moving Company at New York City Center. Scholars have founded such organizations as The Philadelphia Meisner Technique Intensive, which has taught over 150 actors in Philadelphia and New York City.
